OHNSON CITY, TN (WCYB) Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee has announced the creation and funding for a new National Center for Rural Health Research at East Tennessee State University.
Gov. Lee spoke at ETSU’s Quillen College of Medicine on Tuesday. He said one of the biggest challenges people face in rural Tennessee is healthcare.
“This center, I believe, will be a national leader in research,” said Gov. Lee. “Not just in serving and services. Not just access to care. But research the things that drive the components of rural health.”
