OSU study shows grange a ‘natural partner’ for expanding health outreach

In the ongoing struggle to address health care disparities in rural communities across the US, a recent study found that the perfect partner may be hiding in plain sight. The grange, founded in 1867, is a community-based organization that is likely familiar to anyone who’s spent time in a small town. In addition to political advocacy on behalf of farmers, the grange’s missions around community and family also align closely with the goals of public health.
