About this Series:
The Care of Older Adults in Rural Areas (COA-RA) Series was created through a partnership between HIGN and the University of Memphis. The courses in this series were created through funding provided by the US Health Resources and Services Administration. These courses are designed to help the learner recognize factors that impact the well-being of older adults through the lens of rural life by examining poor health outcomes and providing strategies to improve their health.
