The Rural Health Initiative is a program designed to address growing concerns on the health and safety issues facing today’s farm families. At the center of this program is a healthcare professional who makes house calls to interested farm families to provide health screening, information, education, and referrals to area services and, most importantly, lends a trusted ear to listen and keep in confidence concerns and issues these families face today. A concept they like to call “kitchen wellness”.
In 2009, the WI-ORH provided funding to expand the RHI from Shawano County into Outagamie and Waupaca Counties.
