Health Equity Council  

The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) is pleased to announce the reformation of the Health Equity Council and Conference, formerly the Rural Multiracial and Multicultural Health Council and Conference, to highlight issues related to rural and underserved LGBTQ, veteran and homeless populations in addition to the multiracial and multicultural populations the council has advocated on behalf of for years.
The Health Equity Council’s mission is to promote and enhance physical and mental well-being for rural and frontier underserved populations through national leadership, representation and advocacy for accessible, affordable, high-quality health services that result in an improved quality of life. The council will bring these issues to the forefront of discussion at the annual NRHA Health Equity Conference. NRHA encourages all who are interested to attend this conference to learn and engage with experts in health equity, view research posters and network with peers.
With the Health Equity Council and Conference, NRHA remains committed to issues impacting underserved populations in rural and frontier communities. With more than 21,000 members, NRHA continues to provide leadership on rural health issues through communications, advocacy, research and education. Your participation in presentations and contributions to the dialogue of best practices would be of great value for this national audience.
