Topic: Rural Health Initiatives: Tales from the Front Lines at the Federal and Maryland Level
Description: Andrew and Abigail Kaericher will describe the federal State Offices of Rural Health Program and share their unique first-hand perspective gained from working with the U.S. Congress to reauthorize the State Offices of Rural Health program in December 2018. This legislation marks the first time this program has been reauthorized since it was created in 1992. Lindsey will introduce the Maryland Rural Heath Collaborative, which was recently established by the Maryland General Assembly, its mission, and the context which led to its legislative creation.
