In May, the Department of Health and Human Services distributed nearly $50,000 to every federally certified RHC for COVID-19 testing and testing related activities.  This money had been authorized by Congress in late April.

Because there is no deadline for when clinics must spend this money, many RHCs have not used some or any of the money they received.  Some RHCs tell us they are still searching for the best way to use the money to provide maximum benefit to their communities.  

On Thursday, August 27th, at 2:00 pm EASTERN we will be hosting a webinar for the RHC Community on COVID-19 testing.  We have arranged for three speakers from Independent and Provider-based RHCs to talk with you about what they have done in their communities with the COVID-19 money they received. 

This peer-to-peer program is intended to show RHCs what other RHCs have done thus far and what you could do in your communities to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  Speakers will be:

  • Dr. Keith Davis, MD – Shoshone Family Medical Center, Shoshone, Idaho
  • Amanda Shelast – Regional Clinic Director, Keweenaw Hospital, Laurium, Michigan
  • William Massengill – Benson Area Medical Center, Benson, North Carolina

Each of our speakers will share with the audience how they used the COVID-19 money, how they came up with ideas and how they put their plans in motion.  At the end of the formal presentations, we will take questions from the attendees.
