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.
HIV & AIDS
Community Health Center Program
UHRU went to East Georgia Healthcare Center, donated life saving colon cancer screening kits, instituted an evidence based screening policy, and educated over 30 providers and staff members in Swainsboro, Soperton, and Mount Vernon on the importance of colon cancer screening
Where We Work
60 million people, or 19% of the U.S. population live in rural areas. These populations have higher rates of chronic disease, poorer nutrition, and limited access to healthcare resources.
