NRHA's Annual Rural Health Conference is the nation's largest rural health conference, created for all of those with an interest in rural health care, including rural health practitioners, hospital administrators, clinic directors and lay health workers, social workers, state and federal health employees, academics, community members and more.
The annual Rural Medical Education Conference and Health Equity Conference (formerly the Rural Multiracial and Multicultural Health Conference) will both be held May 10 directly prior to the Annual Rural Health Conference.
NRHA makes scholarship funds available for students and community members with a critical need for financial support with conference expenses. Additional information and the scholarship application can be found here.

Some NRHA’s members have been contacted by companies claiming to represent NRHA in booking hotel reservations for this conference. This is unfortunately a widespread problem in the meeting industry. NRHA does not use a third party booking service, and hotel reservations can be booked directly.
