Pofahl co-author on report on impacts of Covid-19 on the rural West
The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted life for millions of people across the United States. Yet, there is a lack of rapid and reliable information about the scope of its impact and potential solutions in underserved areas such as the rural U.S. West. Current information relies on national surveys or focuses on urban regions with greater institutional resources, rather than tailored specifically to the unique needs of rural communities.
With this survey Katie Pofahl and her colleagues aim to close that gap and inform public policy across various levels of government to meet the needs of rural communities struggling with the social and economic impacts of the pandemic.
