Texas Journal of Rural Health


Welcome to the Texas Journal of Rural Health website.  Sponsored by the Office of Rural & Community Health at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, the purpose of the Texas Journal of Rural Health is to provide a forum for sharing ideas related to rural health.  It is the state of Texas' multidisciplinary contribution to the national debate on rural health.

The Journal identifies rural health problems in the United States and around the world.  It showcases new ideas about how to improve the health of rural populations, describes how rural communities have organized to address local health problems, serves as an educational tool, reports the results of original research, and explains how state and federal health policy is affecting rural health.

One of the ways we make sure the Journal meets the needs of rural communities is by seeking the counsel of authorities in the medical field. The Editorial Board is comprised of individuals with a variety of specialties that range from medicine and public health to business and law.
