[caption id="attachment_559" align="alignleft" width="129" caption="US HPSA Map (Primary Care) Source: Rural Assistance Center raconline.org"][/caption] Last week we posted about the NRHA's exclusion from the HRSA committee to develop new recommendations for updating HPSA and MUP designation criteria. We have received overwhelming response from NRHA members and others in the rural health community who have offered to help contact HRSA or their member of Congress, and for that we are greatly appreciative. Last week, we sent the following letter to HRSA: HPSA/MUP Letter to Dr Wakefield As well as the following message to Congress: HPSA/MUP Message to Capitol Hill We know HRSA Administrator Dr. Wakefield, who has long been a champion of rural America's health needs, is working to reevaluate the committee's membership. Therefore it is imperative we continue to remind HRSA and Dr. Wakefield how important rural representation on this committee will be. So please continue to contact her at the email address or phone number below: HRSA Administrator Mary Wakefield, PhD, RN [email protected] 301-443-2216
