The final 2015 issue of Rural Roads is now online, and it's easier than ever to access, navigate and share articles from your mobile device. The magazine features a rural hospital slated to re-open after being closed for more than two years; natives caring for neighbors after sexual assault; an opportunity to get to know NRHA's 2016 president; members Charlie Alfero, Alana Knudson and Cody Mullen in their own words
U.S. Rep. Sam Graves and Congressman Dave Loebsack introduced the #SaveRural Hospitals Act to end the closure crisis. “NRHA has led the fight to stop rural hospital closures across the nation,” says Jodi Schmidt, 2015 NRHA president. “We’re calling on Congress to pass this comprehensive legislation to provide a pathway to the future for rural health.” Ask your representative to co-sponsor this bipartisan bill to stabilize and strengthen rural hospitals.
