The Rural Women’s Health Study is a research project, based in Missouri, that aims to collect information from women and their health care providers regarding the strengths and challenges of finding help for domestic violence in a rural area. Women who live in rural parts of the state who receive their primary health care at either a 1) federally qualified health center or 2) rural health clinic are encouraged to contribute to this research, as are health care providers (doctors or nurses) who work at a rural health clinic or federally qualified health center. Participating in this study means sitting down with the researcher to answer a few questions at a location of your choosing, at a time that is convenient for you.
