The National Rural Health Associations’ (NRHA) goal is to connect you and hundreds of rural health stakeholders to help members of Congress, the executive branch, and federal staff understand what is needed to improve rural health and health care.
NRHA created a new advocacy 101 guide to help members more effectively amplify their voices through information and tools provided by the association and make the most of every opportunity to educate Capitol Hill on the power of rural.
Engagement in activities including the association’s virtual 33rd Rural Health Policy Institute Feb. 8-10 and ongoing grassroots campaigns allows NRHA members to actively participate in advocacy efforts to bring about needed rural health policy and legislation.
NRHA encourages all rural health stakeholders to review this guide and plan to attend NRHA’s Advocacy 101 workshop Feb. 9 by registering for the association’s 33rd Policy Institute at the discounted virtual rate of $260 or $130 for students.
One thing everyone can agree on is that rural should be a priority. But does Congress know what’s next for rural health? As NRHA navigates the new normal, direct advocacy is how NRHA can make sure elected officials know what unique rural communities need.
NHRA looks forward to collaborating at the biggest rural advocacy event in the country and in your rural health advocacy efforts throughout the year.
