Barriers to Colon Cancer Screening In Rural Georgia

Rural citizens in Georgia often times cannot afford stool or colonoscopy based screening tests. UHRU is supporting healthcare centers in rural Georgia to increase access and decrease costs of these life saving tests.

Infection Control in Hospitals

UHRU is making one of its initiatives for 2018, to improve infection control in rural Indian healthcare facilities. Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms such as MRSA, and C. diff are common in these areas, therefore improving sanitation can greatly improve patient outcomes.

Where We Work
