UPCOMING EVENTS

2017 Rural Health Conference: Transitions in Healthcare

at the Attitash Grand Summit in Bartlett, NH on November 15 & 16, 2017

The 2017 NEW ENGLAND RURAL HEALTH CONFERENCE – Transitions In Healthcare – promises to be the premiere interdisciplinary networking and educational event in the region.  For the very first time, we are partnering with the NH Oral Health Coalition and providing a home for their annual summit.  Our rural communities consist of over 2.8 million residents who require a healthcare environment that is responsive to individual and community based needs.  Throughout the region and the Nation our healthcare environment is experiencing a time of transition in both the policy and practice arenas.  Our rural healthcare organizations are facing significant economic, environmental, practice and political challenges and they are responding to them with creative, efficient and effective community based initiatives and unique healthcare delivery models.  This will be your opportunity to get updates on National healthcare policy initiatives and to learn from and network with your peers.  For more information:  https://newenglandruralhealthroundtable.wildapricot.org/2017-Conference-Home
