Harrisburg University Nursing Professor Dr. Nancy Mimm and Geoffrey Roche, HU Executive Director of Strategic Healthcare Initiatives, are cited in a recent report by AARP Pennsylvania and Drexel University’s College of Nursing.
The report, titled, “Disrupting Disparities in Pennsylvania: Retooling for Geographic, Racial and Ethnic Growth,” shows that health inequities are worse among those living in rural and low-resourced areas of the state, and among underrepresented populations (particularly Black/African American and Latino), who lack access to health care, experience digital divide, and face persistent local healthcare workforce shortages.
The study draws on interviews with key stakeholders statewide, a comprehensive literature review, and analyses of databases on the health of Pennsylvanians.
