The Rural Virginia Initiative (RVI) originated with legislation passed in the spring of 2018 that asked the University of Virginia to help lead a conversation on the challenges faced by rural Virginia and to prepare a white paper recommending possible solutions. Following these initial recommendations, the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, UVA Wise, and Virginia State University convened a broadened group of stakeholders from academia, government, and the private sector to continue the dialogue. The Healthcare and Community Well-being Working Group sought to address health disparities in rural Virginia. The group partnered with the Virginia Department of Health to co-develop a Rural Tool Kit of community and academic resources to be deployed as part of the State Rural Health Plan Update.
