Northeast Telehealth Resource Center receives grant to support rural Northeast health care providers with a virtual learning network

A grant from the Health Resources and Service Administration is bringing an evidence-based community learning model to help rural health care providers support older Northeastern residents’ mental and physical health in the pandemic. The grant, awarded to the Northeast Telehealth Resource Center and the University of New Hampshire, will fund a five-year program called the Collaborative for Advancing Rural Excellence and Equity (CARE2). CARE2 will focus on connecting interdisciplinary health experts with community-based health care providers for mentorship, learning, and collaboration. With these supports in place, rural providers are better equipped to manage complex health conditions in their communities, including COVID variants, behavioral health issues, and substance use disorders. These supports are particularly important in consideration of the strains the health care workforce has faced during the pandemic.
