NRHA's Health Equity Conference, formerly known as the Rural Multiracial and Multicultural Conference, is one of the National Rural Health Association's fastest growing conferences. One of the only meetings in the nation to focus on health equity issues in rural America, this event offers attendees the opportunity to meet with peers and experts who share unique concerns and interests. This conference is designed for those who are dedicated to bringing quality health care and health care services to this underserved and often under-represented portion of the rural population.
