The Louisiana Rural Health Association is excited to hold our second annual Louisiana Rural Health Summit! This year's event will focus on "The Business Behind the Bedside" and include sessions on the day-to-day needs and challenges of rural providers across the state of Louisiana beyond regulatory and billing - such as, but not limited to, workforce/human resources, strategic planning and partnerships, and internal management and policies.
