Rural Health Workshop

Learn How to Continue Improving Rural Healthcare

Annual Health Education Workshop for Providers in Rural Louisiana

Well-Ahead Louisiana and the Louisiana Rural Health Association are joining forces to host the 2021 Virtual Rural Health Workshop on December 6, 7, and 8.

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.

Networking has always been a key part of our in-person events, and we are planning opportunities for virtual mixers throughout our Workshop. Our all-new virtual conference platform will allow for chat and engagement during the event with fellow attendees, as well as our speakers, exhibitors and event support partners.

Who Should Attend?

All members of rural healthcare teams have a role to play in moving the health of their community forward! Our virtual workshop is convenient and provided at no cost to attendees! Our agenda will 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.

Speakers and Agenda: Coming Soon!

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!

Event Support and Exhibitors: More Information Coming Soon!

Traditionally, the Rural Health Workshop attracts more than 200 of Louisiana’s rural healthcare professionals. Our all-new virtual event platform will feature an interactive exhibit hall with customizable booths that will allow exhibitors to upload marketing materials—videos, flyers, presentations, and more! Additionally, you will be able to engage in live chat directly with attendees who visit your booth.

Join us for this all-new virtual exhibitor opportunity at the Rural Health Workshop where you can showcase your services and products to key decision makers in rural Louisiana. We look forward to making the workshop an exciting and customer-rich marketplace for you to maximize your exposure, generate new connections, and demonstrate your value in the rural healthcare industry!
