The NRHA is excited to host the 29th Annual Rural Health Policy Institute here in Washington, D.C., and we hope you will join us this February!

Every day we see more headlines describing the health crisis in rural America. Chronic disease, chronic poverty, chronic health care workforce shortages, and a rural hospital closure crisis have formed the perform storm that is devastating rural America. At the National Rural Health Association Annual Policy Institute, rural health care leaders from across the country will join national experts who will offer policy solutions on how to transform health care in rural America. The conference will focus on eliminating health disparities caused by the opioid epidemic and chronic disease, especially among rural minority populations, as well as address the escalating provider shortages in obstetric care, veterans’ care and dental and mental health care. Experts will also speak on the rural hospital closure crisis, important Rural Medicare programs (Extenders), the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Medicaid, Medicare, and the 340B Program.
