Health Equity Conference

May 8, 2018 New Orleans, La.

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 health care services to this underserved and often under-represented portion of the rural population.

Call for presentations and research

NRHA is soliciting session proposals for the 2018 Annual Health Equity Conference, an opportunity to share effective models, policies, research, and insights and best practices addressing many of the access, quality and geographic issues confronted by underserved rural communities.

Please consider contributing an abstract or poster submission for this one of a kind event. Entry deadline for concurrent sessions is Nov. 30 and for posters March 22.

    Hotel
    The Marriott New Orleans Hotel is located at 555 Canal St. in the heart of the French Quarter, 16 miles from the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

    NRHA’s discounted rate is $215 plus tax (currently 13% plus $3 per night city occupancy tax). The hotel discount deadline is April 16 or when rooms sell out. NRHA events consistently sell out early so don’t delay in booking your room.

    Fraud alert
    Some NRHA’s members have been contacted by companies claiming to represent NRHA in booking hotel reservations for this conference. This is unfortunately a widespread problem in the meeting industry. NRHA does not use a third party booking service, and hotel reservations can be booked directly.
