Report Released on Preventive Health Service Use Among Rural Women

This post was originally published on this site

This study from the Maine Rural Health Research Center examined receipt of preventive health services (cholesterol check, fasting blood sugar test, mammogram, pap smear, and vaccination for the human papillomavirus, also known as HPV) by rural and urban women over the age of 18. Findings indicate that rural women were less likely than their urban peers to receive preventive health services.  The report can be accessed at https://www.ruralhealthresearch.org/alerts/279.
