Lerner Postdoctoral Scholar, Danielle Rhubart, was selected to receive a pilot grant from the Interdisciplinary Network on Rural Population Health and Aging (INRPHA). Dr. Rhubart’s study, “Social Infrastructure and Mental Health among Older Adults in Rural America,” will use data from the Behavioral Risk Factors Surveillance System to determine if and how social infrastructure explains variation in self-reported mental health among older adults (65+) in rural America. INRPHA is funded by the National Institute on Aging.
