In February, 2008, Rural Health Initiative (RHI) partners convened a meeting of stakeholders including community members, academics, local government officials, health care providers, public health workers, Tribal Health Department representatives and nonprofit organizations to discuss the potential for a coordinated, collaborative approach to health and wellness in Montana. For one-and-a-half days communities and experts worked together to develop a strategy for improving health in Montana by linking community health initiatives with the expertise that exists in the state.
A principle recommendation stemming from the Rural Health Initiative stakeholder meeting in February, 2008, was to “create a network of health experts, programs, and initiatives in Montana.” This recommendation has led to the development of the RHI and this site.
