Despite decreases in cancer death rates nationwide, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows slower reduction in cancer death rates in rural America (a decrease of 1.0% per year) compared with urban America (a decrease of 1.6% per year), according to data published by Henley et al in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. The report is the first complete description of cancer incidence and mortality in rural and urban America.. Researchers found that rates of new cases for lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and cervical cancer were higher in rural America. In contrast, rural areas were found to have lower rates of new cancers of the female breast and prostate. Rural counties had higher death rates from lung, colorectal, prostate, and cervical cancers.. "While geography alone cant predict your risk of cancer, it can impact prevention, diagnosis. and treatment opportunities-and thats a significant public health problem in the United States," said CDC Acting ...

What makes for a thriving regional economy? And why does it matter? These are questions that a lot of folks out here in rural America are asking every day.

The older population, those aged 65 and older, is distributed across the urban and rural landscapes in ways that help shape this population and the country overall. According to 2012 to 2016 American Community Survey (ACS) data, there were 46.2 million older people in the United States, with 10.6 million living in areas designated as rural by the U.S. Census Bureau. Considering that the oldest of the baby boomers, those born between mid-1946 and 1964, began turning 65 years old in 2011, the demographic changes ahead for rural America have only begun. Most older people do not live in rural areas and most rural residents are not older. But an older, increasingly rural, population requires specialized medical and rehabilitation services, as well as innovative housing and public transportation options. An aging population clearly has the potential to shape rural America in new and important ways.. ...
If the culture wars drove the 2016 election and its outcome, one of the most obvious wedge issues deployed by the right was abortion. The question of whether people who are pregnant should be allowed to exercise the right to make a private medical decision should have been settled in 1973 with Roe v. Wade, but in fact, the landmark Supreme Court decision just served to mobilize the right and politicize the subject of abortion to an extreme degree.. On one side: People like President Donald Trump, who remarked in a 2016 town hall that he believed women should be "punished" for getting abortions and vowed to appoint an anti-choice Supreme Court justice. On the other: The 79 percent of Americans who have affirmed that they believe patients should have the right to choose in all or some circumstances.. Somewhere in the silent middle: rural America. Abortion is an issue that matters acutely to rural America, where it is substantially more difficult to access reproductive health care, including ...
Transforming rural health to realize the full health potential of rural communities requires a multi-layered strategy. Leadership and innovation in access, value, health improvements, outcomes monitoring and data analytics are all critical ingredients for success. One of the critical ingredients needed to transform rural health is establishing community-wide initiatives for improving the health of the whole population. Such initiatives must align the culture of health care and the culture of the community. When multiple community partners align around core values and strategy, they can work together to improve access, provide more efficient care and achieve better outcomes. ...

Two articles in this issue address important "neighborhoods and health" cancer disparities issues. In a research article, Palmer and colleagues examined rural-urban disparities in forgoing healthcare due to cost amongst 7,804 cancer survivors. Compared to urban cancer survivors, rural cancer survivors were more likely to forgo medical or dental care due to cost. Adjustment for health insurance attenuated these rural-urban disparities among younger cancer survivors, but not older cancer survivors. In a separate review, Meilleur and colleagues highlight key points regarding rural residence and cancer outcomes in the US, identifying conventions that will assist future investigations into the effects of rural residence on cancer outcomes. ...

The implications of exposure to acute and chronic stressors, and seeking mental health care, for increased psychological distress are examined. Research on eco¬nomic stress, psychological distress, and rural agrarian values each point to in¬creasing variability within rural areas. Using data from a panel study of 1,487 adults, a model predicting changes in depressive symptoms was specified and tested. Results show effects by size of place for men but not for women. Men living in rural villages of under 2,500 or in small towns of 2,500 to 9,999 people had significantly greater increases in depressive symptoms than men living in the country or in larger towns or cities. Size of place was also related to level of stigma toward mental health care. Persons living in the most rural environments were more likely to hold stigmatized attitudes toward mental health care and these views were strongly predictive of willingness to seek care. The combination of increased risk and less willingness to seek assistance

EXCERPT: "The number of people living in rural (nonmetro) counties stood at 46.1 million in July 2016-14 percent of all U.S. residents spread across 72 percent of the Nations land area. The rural population declined by 21,000 between July 2015 and July 2016, according to the U.S. Census Bureaus latest population estimates, the sixth consecutive year of modest population losses. Although many rural counties have shown population losses for decades, this is the first period on record of overall rural population decline . . .County population change includes two major components: natural change (births minus deaths) and net migration (in-migrants minus out-migrants). While natural change has gradually trended downward over time, net migration rates tend to fluctuate in response to economic conditions. Since 2010, the increase in rural population from natural change (270,000 more births than deaths) has not matched the decrease in population from net migration (462,000 more people moved out than ...

I think newspaper overkill is a defining characteristic of rural areas. I remember how little rural towns would have their own 6 page paper in a stand next to the local micro-tropoliss newspaper, next to the nearest big citys news paper. In Hayesville, NC, wed have the Clay County Progress next to the Asheville Citizen-Times next to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. But if you drove 40 miles east on US-64 to Brevard or Rosman, the Journal-Constitution was replaced by the Charlotte News and Observer. I always found it fascinating to see what big city newspaper a little town chose; it almost seemed to be a statement of what stream of commerce the town wanted to align itself with. If you went to a bigger town, the newspaper hierarchy just bumped up one notch: Asheville had the Citizen-Times next door to the Charlotte News and Observer next door to the Washington Post. ...

Long weighed down by dwindling populations in farming and coal communities and the movement of young people to cities, rural America is now being hit by sputtering growth in retirement and recreation areas, once residential hot spots for baby boomers.. The census estimates, as of July 2012, show that would-be retirees are opting to stay put in urban areas near jobs.. Recent weakness in the economy means some boomers have less savings than a decade ago to buy a vacation home in the countryside, which often becomes a full-time residence after retirement. Cities are also boosting urban living, a potential draw for boomers who may prefer to age closer to accessible health care.. For instance, in Royels Lyon County, Nev., about 30 miles east of Reno, small towns prospered during the housing boom. Spillover residents from Californias expensive Bay Area flocked to the area, drawn to the affordable housing, temperate weather and lack of a state income tax.. But after the housing bubble burst, the ...

In a statement for the Senate record, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today recognized the importance of National Rural Health Day. In Illinois, 81 of the 83 rural counties are considered primary care shortage areas, impacting nearly 2 million Illinoisans.
I should point out that the percentage of residents moving away from rural counties was actually higher in the 1950s, 1960s and 1980s. Whats changed is a steady decline through the decades in natural population growth (births minus deaths) in rural America. In hundreds of rural counties, most in fact, deaths are now outpacing births.. This is because more and more young people are moving away from rural areas in search of better job opportunities in the cities. This has happened before, but its getting to the point where there just arent that many young people around anymore. This explains why the average age in rural America is on the rise.. Immigrants from abroad have brought new vitality to many US cities. Yet as of 2013, foreign-born residents made up only 2.4% of the rural population vs. 7.9% in metropolitan areas. Part of this is because rural residents are much more suspicious of immigrants, according to the WAPO/Kaiser survey.. Rural residents are nearly three times as likely, 42%, as ...
