Who We Are

The Louisiana Rural Health Association recognizes that rural areas are unique and differ from urban areas in their geography, population mix and density, economics, lifestyle, values, and social organizations. Rural people and communities require programming and advocacy that responds to their unique characteristics and needs.

Through discussion and exploration, the LRHA works to create a clear understanding of rural health care in Louisiana, its needs and effective ways to meet these needs.
