The F. Marie Hall Institute for Rural and Community Health at TTUHSC was established in February 2006 with a donation from Ms. Hall to leverage the existing resources of TTUHSC’s Office of Rural and Community Health and expand the impact of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in addressing the needs of the region and developing solutions that affect rural health beyond the bounds of West Texas.

The Institute for Rural and Community Health is a multidisciplinary group of professionals that are the focal point of key programs in four major areas—the West Texas Area Health Education Center, Rural Health Research, the West Texas Health Information Technology Regional Extension Center, and Telemedicine. These programs integrate services to bring innovative solutions to the broad spectrum of health-related challenges across West Texas by synthesizing the needs of the region and by creating both technological and hands-on face-to-face opportunities to connect education, research and delivery of patient care to meet the local needs of communities—while at the same time training the future health and research professionals who will serve not only West Texas, but also the entire country.
