Post Conference Report
We were honored and privileged to have attended the NRHA Rural Health Institute 2019 in Washington, DC last week. We joined our voice with the Rural Health Institute to advocate for better healthcare in Rural America.
NRHA Rural Health Institute 2019
The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) is a national nonprofit membership organization with more than 21,000 members.
In 2018 AB Med became an NRHA Gold Partner. AB Med has developed broad experience and technical knowledge related to rural healthcare delivery. Our experience extends from recruitment and retention to leadership and practice management. AB Med has a well-diversified cadre of rural and remote personnel available for both short and long-term assignments, geared towards the enhancement and invigoration of your facility
Mr. Devlin Rice noted:
“While attending the National Rural Health Associations Rural Health Policy Institute in Washington, D.C. we had the opportunity to meet with influencers, partners and members of the NRHA. These discussions centered on the unique needs in rural areas from long-term care, the opioid crisis and workforce shortages. While the demands and needs in our rural communities continue to expand, it was evident that with the support of the NRHA and the passion from its members and the communities they support progress will be made.”
There is a sense of pride and awe when visiting Capitol Hill.
Thank you to all those who attended and especially NRHA for creating a platform of collaboration and a vehicle that gets our Rural Voices further!
If your facility could use help finding solutions to any of the daily challenges you face in serving your patients’ needs, please get in touch. At AB Med, we are proud to support our Rural Communities!
