Advancing Rural Health
in West Virginia


The Robert C. Byrd Center for Rural Health focuses on training the next generation of rural physicians and inspiring health care advocates in Appalachian rural communities. We can all play a role in improving health disparities for at-risk populations.


New ideas and perspectives bring innovative ideas to life. At the Robert C. Byrd Center for Rural Health, we use technology, research and advocacy to implement solutions that benefit rural West Virginia.

Collaboration, camaraderie and our “can-do” spirit make way for real opportunities to reduce health care disparities in some of the most rural parts of our state.
