Myth Busting the Rural/Urban Divide in Ohio – March 31 WOSU Program

While Ohio is the seventh most populous state in the nation, it is also home to more than 75,000 farms. Urban and rural spaces are incredibly interconnected in Ohio, but their differences and disconnections are more frequently highlighted. What drives this mythical divide between urban and rural issues, and how can we debunk the myth? With a focus on health, education and employment, this webinar hopes to add perspective to a much needed, ongoing conversation.

Join us for this free, virtual conversation with Dr. Jackie Wilkins, associate dean and director, OSU Extension; DaVonti D. Haynes, graduate research associate in Strategic Initiatives and Urban Engagement, College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences; and Dr. Shawnté Elbert, associate vice president for health and well-being at the Ohio State University Office of Student Life. Click here to register – March 31, 12-1:15pm.
