Rural Reimagined Faculty Success Story with Dr. Jeffrey Boles

Graphic faculty spotlightWithin a year of the Grand Challenge initiative, many faculty have incorporated Rural Reimagined into their coursework and research. In the fall semester of 2019, Dr. Boles successfully integrated the Grand Challenge into four university connection classes through rural healthcare related challenges. Sixty students, instructed by Dr. Boles, Dr. Coonce, Dr. Carrick, and Dr. Turner, researched solutions and disseminated results to rural problems through flyers, posters, and educational presentations. Dr. Boles loves the Grand Challenge, and he believes that “integrating Rural Reimagined into our pre-health science first year experience courses introduces it to new students.” Wings up, Dr. Boles!
