The Ingredients of a Thriving Rural Community
In rural areas and small communities, we often find health and school systems are the largest employers. These industries are more alike than different in several ways. Today, Quint Studer and Janet Pilcher discuss the intersection between healthcare and education, and how these two industries have the power to transform their communities into successful, thriving places filled with talented workers.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- What is the symbiotic connection between healthcare, education, and communities?
- What can healthcare and education leaders do to strengthen rural communities?
- Why is it critical to support small businesses – and what is their place in this equation?
