CIT is a private non-profit organization whose focus is on improving outcomes for people who become suddenly ill or who are injured in rural areas of the U.S. and around the world. We are staffed by a unique blend of individuals who come from a variety of academic and experiential backgrounds but share a common passion for the preservation of rural life. CIT is a highly collaborative organization, believing that answers to health care challenges in rural areas will not come in isolation but in cooperation. We are governed by a world class board of directors who guide and support the activities of the organization. CIT is a non-membership organization that relies on grants, contracts and private donations to continue its mission.
