AB at the Conference
AB Healthcare and its family of companies AB Med, AB Staffing and Adaptive Workforce, attended the NRHA Rural Health Institute 2019 conference. Our Director of Sales Devlin Rice were there.
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.”
