Health Equity Conference
May 7, 2019 Atlanta, Ga.
NRHA's Health Equity 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 the same unique concerns and interests.
This conference is designed for those who are dedicated to bringing quality health care and services to the most underserved, and often under-represented, portions of the rural population.
Stick around for NRHA's Annual Rural Health Conference, the nation's largest gathering of rural health pros, May 7-10.
Call for presentations and research
Please consider submitting a presentation proposal or research poster to contribute to this one of a kind event in 2019. Presentations are due by the extended deadline of Dec. 13 and posters are due by Feb. 14.
Rosemary McKenzie Legacy Award
Rosemary McKenzie's passion for rural health and dedication to multicultural and multiracial populations were unparalleled. Rosemary served as the National Rural Health Association's minority liaison and program services manager in the Kansas City, Mo., office for 27 years. She died in 2011 due to complications from pancreatic cancer.
To carry on Rosemary McKenzie's legacy and honor her memory, the National Rural Health Association has established the Rosemary McKenzie Legacy Award to be presented annually during the Health Equity Conference, a conference she predominantly and passionately coordinated. The award winner will receive free registration to the 2018 conference and a $1,000 stipend to be used for travel and accommodations for the event, where they will be recognized.
To donate, send a tax-deductible contribution to 4501 College Blvd Ste 225 Leawood, KS 66211. Please make checks out to "Rural Health Leadership and Education Foundation" and indicate "Rosemary Legacy Fund" on the memo line.
