Message from the Director of the VHA Office of Rural Health

Thu. February 26, 2015

It is now widely recognized that factors outside of health known as social determinants, such as the community in which you live, can effect one’s health. Community characteristics and resources have been linked to health outcomes, and can widely differ community to community. That’s why we decided to focus this issue of The Rural Connection on the impact of community on health to highlight some of the many efforts underway that support rural communities where our Veterans reside. This issue is the second in a four-part series on the impact that the social determinants of health have on Veterans in rural communities. In case you missed it, last quarter’s issue featured the impact of employment on Veterans’ health and well-being.
