29th Annual Oregon Rural Health Conference

The 29th Annual Rural Health Conference, Forging Linkages: Healthier Communities Start with You!, was held October 24-26, 2012 at Salishan Spa and Golf Resort, Gleneden Beach Oregon.

This conference is the largest gathering in Oregon dedicated to the important issues of rural health care. Bringing together providers, administrators, patients, activists, policy makers and others who are concerned about health care in rural Oregon, it is an opportunity to exchange ideas, information, and expertise among individuals and organizations engaged in or concerned with rural health care issues. 

In collaboration with the Oregon Rural Health Association (ORHA), Oregon Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) and the Oregon Rural Practice-based Research Network (ORPRN), the Oregon Office of Rural Health (ORH) strives to bring you the most innovative approaches to addressing today's needs.
