Our Workshop Experience

Our joint workshop provides an opportunity for rural healthcare professionals across our state to hear from federal and state-level leaders on current hot topics. It also provides information on available funding and technical assistance opportunities—plus offers education that aims to improve patient care and eliminate rural health disparities.

Who Attends

All members of rural healthcare teams have a role to play in moving the health of their community forward! Our workshop is convenient and provided at no cost to attendees! Our sessions include something for everyone on your team—chief executive officers, chief financial officers, chief operating officers, chief nursing officers, clinic directors, physicians, nurse practitioners, quality improvement staff, billing staff and more.

What to Expect

Our past guest speakers have included leaders at the National Association of Rural Health Clinics, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, TexLA Telehealth Resource Center, and more. Some you may know, but others you’ll be discovering for the first time when you participate in the Workshop!
