The Louisiana Rural Health Association proud to partner with Well-Ahead Louisiana to host the

2023 Rural Health Workshop

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.

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

Attendee registration is NOW FULL

We look forward to seeing everyone in Lake Charles on June 20 - 22, 2023.
