Resource: MN Rural Care Chartbook

The Minnesota Department of Health compiled a chartbook focusing on rural health in MN.  This chartbook defines rural in MN, provides demographic information about rural residents, shares insurance coverage for rural residents, gives statistics on primary and specialty care access for rural residents, shares information on trauma care availability (including driving time), discusses opioid rates, and highlights key disparities rural residents face. The chartbook is broken nicely into topics of interest and includes a key point section to summarize each topic, for quick and easy review. It also includes graphics and images to adequately share information.
