Draft AGENDA NOW AVAILABLE!
Goal: The goal of the conference is to support and connect rural health stakeholders as they work towards Accelerating Change in Maryland’s current dynamic health care environment. The conference will gather rural health leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to discuss the major health issues facing rural Maryland. Past conference attendees have pointed toward the value of illustrating data driven and evidence based public health and community level practices as most useful to participants.
