Conference Explores Aging in Rural Oregon

The event, which is being held in Hood River, is sponsored by the Office of Rural Health.

The challenges faced by an aging population in rural communities takes center stage at a conference scheduled for April 20-21.

Sponsored by the Office of Rural Health, the goal is to bring people together to learn from one another about creative innovative ideas, said Scott Ekblad. Often, there are barriers to access in rural areas such as the lack of transportation and a shortage of providers which place a heavy burden on caregivers and families.
