Critical Access Hospital Conference

Sep 22-24, 2021 A virtual event

We'll have to wait to see you in person


Join clinic and CAH stakeholders from across the country for NRHA’s virtual Rural Health Clinic and Critical Access Hospital Conferences, Sept. 21-24. They’re the association’s fastest-growing events for a reason.

You can log in to the event now with your name and the email address you registered with.


Take advantage of the educational and networking opportunities designed for clinic and hospital professionals and board members serving rural America.

Be sure to check out the new virtual registration rate structure and expanded agenda. As usual, all content will be made available as the event happens and on demand at your convenience for a full year so you can watch every session you’ve registered for.

This year’s virtual events feature topics including:

  • Identifying effective vaccine efforts and pandemic lessons learned
  • Expanding telehealth capacity in rural communities
  • Innovating pathways for workforce development
  • Rural maternal health and workforce expansion
  • Rural-specific regulatory and policy updates
  • Three distinct sessions on behavioral health and much more

Virtual events allow NRHA to present – and you to experience – even more educational content than at an in-person event. NRHA will utilize the same platform as our 2021 Annual Rural Health Conference, by far our most intuitive and seamless virtual environment.

Be sure to register for both events to save $100 on your total registration cost.

NRHA members save $100 more on each event, while those who have never been an NRHA member will receive a complimentary one-year NRHA membership.
