The health and safety of all Rural Health Conference attendees and communities they serve are the Institute for Rural Health Research’s highest priorities. While we believe that the decision to reschedule the conference for next year is the correct one to protect our meeting participants and speakers from further potential exposure to the virus, we also understand we also understand this is a disappointing one for our supporters. We thank all of our supporters, participants, and speakers for their patience and support at this time.
