2017 Rural Health and Hospitals Conference



The 2017 CHA Rural Health and Hospitals Conference, March 8 - 10, is the place to be where health care professionals and community partners share strategies and resources for a more integrated, high performing and collaborative rural health care system. This year’s conference will focus on the thinking bigger and more creatively about solutions when tackling challenges that occur on a daily basis while helping provide you tools to drive and control your future.

A highlight of this year's conference is a visit to the Capitol, Wednesday, March 8, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., for CHA members to meet with their state legislators for a two-way dialogue about rural health and health care. Attendees will also have a behind-the-scenes tour with the CHA legislative team, providing special access to legislative leadership and the opportunity to tell your story. A shuttle will leave the Denver Marriott West at 9:30 a.m. and lunch will be provided.
