Rural Philanthropy as a Long-Term Strategy

On this Advancing Health podcast, Joy Lewis, AHA vice president for strategic policy planning, and Allen Smart, principal at Winston-Salem, N.C.-based PhilanthropywoRx, discuss the imperative for rural hospital leaders to develop long-term strategies where community engagement and philanthropy meet for the good of communities’ health. When properly positioned for the long-term, philanthropic relationships with both the private and public sector entities can fuel both innovation and population health improvements.
