On Thursday, Nov. 3, the 2022 Rural Scholars from University of Massachusetts will present findings and recommendations from this year’s research project. The focus this fall has been on assessing the Island’s capacity to deliver health and social services to homebound residents who are disabled or older adults.

The Rural Scholars program is an annual program sponsored by the Dukes County Health Council. It brings together medical students from UMass and an Island-based community partner to work on a research project beneficial to the Island. The 2022 partner is Healthy Aging MV.

The presentation on Nov. 3 will take place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the West Tisbury Public Library. It is free and open to the public.
