In addition, HRSA’s Regional Offices visited rural partners around the country to celebrate National Rural Health Day. The staff visits highlighted HRSA’s commitment to enhancing rural health and the “power of rural.”

  • HRSA Region 1 (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont) team members attended the New England Rural Health Association Conference in Killington, Vermont. This year’s theme was “New Horizons in Rural Health Equity.” This annual conference provides HRSA an opportunity to share information about programs and current resources with rural health care professionals, hospital administrators, educators, students, and community leaders. The conference also allows HRSA’s federal partners and rural health experts to explore ways to better leverage resources, advance health equity, and improve health outcomes.
