The Montana Office of Rural Health has discovered through interviews with local Montanans that Public Health Departments are often under utilized. 
” Access to healthcare is a huge issue. The community needs knowledge of what is available. Even with the health department here in the community, people don’t know what they provide. Public Health is an underutilized resource. ” Quote from local Montanan
