Welcome to the CRHRE
Welcome to the Center for Rural Health Research and Education (CRHRE, pronounced "share") Web site. A unit of the UW College of Health Sciences, the CRHRE's mission is to provide tools, technology, and support services that enable practitioners, administrators, educators, researchers, policy makers, and students to improve the quality of health care and services in rural areas of Wyoming.

On December 21, 2012, the Federal Communications Commission released a lengthy decision updating its rules and policies for its rural healthcare program (In the Matter of Rural Health Care Support Mechanism, FCC 12-150, at para. 45). The changes are designed to promote access to, and the deployment of, broadband networks supporting rural healthcare providers, enabling these providers to expand the reach of telemedicine and mHealth (mobile health) capabilities.
