Rural residents experience risk factors that contribute to health disparities and lower life expectancy (CDC, 2017; Skoufalos et al., 2017). Rurality and the associated social settings of rural communities have direct relation to difficulty in accessing healthcare which is further complicated by distance and weather-related issues common to Montana. The overarching purpose of this review is to determine if the health of elderly rural Montanans is improved with the creation and use of a mobile care clinic in the community to serve these individuals. This quality improvement project will be conducted using survey's via convenience sampling of elderly members in a rural community in Montana.
