National Rural Health Association

2015 Policy Institute

Congressional Action Kit


The National Rural Health Association's Rural Health Policy Institute is the largest rural advocacy event in the country. At the conference you can learn firsthand about the development and implementation of health care policy at the federal level and meet with your members of Congress. 

NRHA has developed three requests or items for members to ask their senators and representatives to support:

1)  Protect and strenghten all rural hospitals.

2)  Robust funding levels for all rural health programs for fiscal year 2016.

3)  Join the Senate Rural Health Caucus or House Rural Health Care Coalition and sponsor key legislation.
