Your next step after voting.

NRHA’s 32nd Annual Rural Health Policy Institute is your chance to guide the future of rural health policy with NRHA leadership and advocate for issues you care about with new and returning members of Congress and the administration. Save the date for Feb. 9-11 as registration opens soon.

Join NRHA and hundreds of rural health advocates from across the nation for the largest rural advocacy event in the country.

“Now, more than ever before, is our time to convince Congress that rural heath isn’t just a headline,” says NRHA government affairs and policy vice president Carrie Cochran-McClain. “Rural health is a movement. It’s time for Capitol Hill to hear your voice.”

You’ll have the chance to:


  • Hear leaders within the administration and Congress outline their plans to make health care work in rural America
  • Attend NRHA's Advocacy 101 workshop Feb. 9 for aspiring rural health care advocates
  • Speak directly with your congressional delegation on Capitol Hill and educate them about the issues affecting rural health facilities in your community
  • Participate in NRHA’s Rural Health Disparities Summit and gain the tools to overcome significant challenges within your community

“Rural health, and NRHA in particular, feels like family,” says NRHA CEO Alan Morgan. “Everyone seems to know one another, and we understand the value of working together. Our Policy Institute is the family reunion you will not want to miss.”

We need your voice at our most important rural health advocacy event yet. Let’s put our ideas in motion and speak directly with our elected officials to advocate for legislation and policies that protect rural patients, providers, and their communities.
