Sponsored by:
Bill Lane Center for the American West, Stanford University; School for Advanced Research, Santa Fe

In partnership with the School for Advanced Research, the Center will be holding the fifth annual Eccles Family Rural West Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 

The Rural West Conference is interdisciplinary, bringing together academics, lawyers, journalists, and policymakers to share knowledge and ideas about the Rural West. Attendees represent the small handful of people at their universities and organizations who work on rural issues, and the Rural West Conference has become a forum for engaging and energizing work. We are excited to hold this year's conference in New Mexico’s historic capital city. This year's conference theme is “A Healthier Rural West: Critical Issues…Innovative Solutions.”

At our fifth annual conference, we shift our focus from identifying challenges to engaging policymakers, practitioners and academics to develop solutions that can be deployed throughout the Rural West. Using health as our lens, speakers and panelists seek to answer the fundamental question: what will deliver a healthier Rural West? Panels will address public and personal health, environmental health, public land management, and news consumption in the Rural West.

Live Streaming on March 24 and 25
