Third Annual Rural Healthcare Symposium - 4/5/18
The School of Law presented, in conjunction with the health law and consulting firm Boling & Company, the third annual Rural Healthcare Symposium. Healthcare policymakers, executives, entrepreneurs and scholars explored a range of issues addressing local and national rural healthcare disparities. There were four panels focusing on: rural healthcare administration and management by those "in the trenches," transformative ideas in rural health, mental and behavioral health shortages, and the intersection of rural health and rural economic development. The keynote speaker was the National Rural Health Association’s Maggie Elehwany, who serves as the group’s vice president of government affairs and policy.
