Initiated in 2001, the Kentucky Delta Rural Project centered on addressing community-initiated health issues through the establishment of local community health councils in service area counties. In 2004, KDRP graduated to a regional approach and focused efforts on top community driven issues including obesity and wellness, health literacy, dental health, and prescription assistance. Our goals for our service area are to: 1) reduce childhood obesity and enhance the health and wellbeing of elementary school children; 2) train teachers on bullying awareness, prevention and intervention; and 3) introduce oral health education to elementary students.

Since 2003, KDRP has supported prescription assistance efforts.

The program has served 3,300+ clients with more than $7.2 million estimated value of medications distributed.
