Rural America, and RUPRI, Have Lost a Great Advocate

Dear Friends, With deep sadness, RUPRI was forced to change this section of our website this week, where we spotlighted RUPRI Leader Mario Gutierrez, Executive Director of the Center for Connected Health Policy, and Chair of the RUPRI Human Services Panel. In a tragic irony, Mario passed away last Wednesday, following surgery complications.

In Memoriam

The Rural Policy Research Institute (RUPRI) provides unbiased analysis and information on the challenges, needs, and opportunities facing rural America. RUPRI’s aim is to spur public dialogue and help policymakers understand the rural impacts of public policies and programs.

Our work helps to promote innovative, collaborative, and systems-based approaches to rural issues that engage decision-makers and rural people at local, regional, state, national, and international levels.

Check out the latest news and events, RUPRI people, and latest policy initiatives. Find out where RUPRI people are going to be speaking and working, the latest products of our many areas of work, and news in the industry that effects policy makers and rural America.
