Composed prior to my arrival to CADCA; Addressing Rural Cancer Health Disparities, Geographic Health Equity Alliance (GHEA) Rural Cancer Disparities Publication; shines a spotlight on ways leaders can address rural disparities along the cancer continuum. Created from a partnership between CADCA and Wake Forest School of Medicine, this publication offers GHEA’s geographic health equity model, which can be applied to better identify local conditions contributing to rural disparities in tobacco and cancer as well as implement appropriate place-based promising practices to address them. I was one of several editors for publication before it was finalized. I also composed the opening letter to the publication. Read it and let me know if you have any constructive feedback.
I am committed to a person who loves me for who I am. He and I have two dogs. Cascadia is home for us. I know for sure no one makes it alone; bootstrapping is a cliched dog whistle. I surround myself with truth tellers. I am healthy and grateful for what I have (on most days). I wholeheartedly believe reading gives us super powers. Vote. Exercise. Eat Healthily. Sleep Soundly.
