Author: Kristi Ressel

In 2021, a team of MU researchers, including Kristi Ressel, former IPP Senior Research Analyst and Beau Underwood, Truman School doctoral student, conducted interviews of staff and administrators in rural Missouri health and health care organizations. They sought to understand how rural Missouri organizations implement care coordination that integrates social services with health care.
