Philadelphia Children’s Hospital’s PolicyLab Launches Interactive Platform on Rural Maternal and Child Health

Debuting Our Rural Pennsylvania: An Interactive Atlas of the Places that Influence Maternal and Child Health

During this year’s National Rural Health Week, PolicyLab will be debuting Our Rural Pennsylvania, an online interactive atlas created by mothers and caregivers to record the everyday places that influence their family’s health. Nearly three years in the making, Our Rural Pennsylvania is the public-facing output of a research project, ‘Understanding the Role of Place in Health and Well-being for families – a Photovoice Project by Moms’. The interdisciplinary project identifies rural-relevant policies and investments to improve maternal and child health in rural communities. Learn more about the project here.

Please join us virtually on November 17 at 5:30pm to celebrate the website launch, hear about the project, and learn about how to use the interactive resource as a resource to advocate for building healthy rural communities. Please RSVP here.
