Hosted by the Institute for Rural Health Research at The University of Alabama College of Community Health Sciences, the Rural Health Conference centers around health care issues relevant to rural communities. Each year, the conference provides a platform for health care professionals, community leaders, researchers, government officials and representatives of faith-based organizations who come together to hear from prominent speakers and to share critical information and knowledge about the health disparities that impact rural Alabama.
The 2017 conference will focus on women’s health and will feature presentations on such topics as reproductive health, diet and sexually transmitted diseases. The first day of the conference will be geared toward research in women’s health and the second toward clinical training for medical personnel.
The University of Alabama School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
