IRH in the Community

The IRH primarily offers services in the Barren River Area Development District (BRADD): Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson, and Warren Counties. The IRH service area is home to 284,195 people[1] in mostly rural communities. According to the 2010 US Census Bureau, the majority of the counties within the BRADD have higher poverty rates as compared to the state average of 17.7%. Additionally, the total number of adults who consider themselves to have less than good health is higher than the state average of 23%[2].

While the bulk of services are delivered within the BRADD, the IRH staff have also provided services in other areas of Kentucky, such as Christian, Grayson, Hardin, McCreary, Ohio, Pike, and Todd Counties. The IRH also delivers dental services annually in Belize, as part of a global service-learning project.
