2021 Oregon Rural Health Conference Instructions for Speakers

2021 Conference Speakers

The Oregon Office of Rural Health thanks you for being a speaker at the 38th Annual Oregon Rural Health Conference, held from October 27 through noon on October 29.

Information and Disclosure for CE Application: Time Sensitive

You will receive an email from CME@OHSU.edu with a link for you to complete your Conflict of Interest Disclosure. This process is very fast – about 30 seconds, on average, so please follow the link in the email as soon as possible. Many financial relationships, such as employment with a health care organization, are not conflicts of interest by the ACCME definition. If you have any questions about what constitutes a conflict, please contact Laura Potter


Registration is now closed. Please contact Laura Potter | 503-494-5244 with any concerns.

Presentation Formats and Deadlines

Many presenters use PowerPoint presentations, though this is not required. We suggest that you do not embed videos in your presentation, as problems often occur with them. We request that presentations are sent to us via email no later than October 5, 2021. If your file is too large for email, we will invite you to upload it to the OHSU Box folder, which can handle larger files.

Presentation Publication to the Oregon Office of Rural Health Website

We will publish a PDF version of your presentation and your handouts on our website following the conference unless you direct us not to do so. Simply send an email to Laura Potter if you do not want your PDF’d presentation posted on the website.

Contact Information Made Available to Registrants

The Oregon Office of Rural Health provides names and emails of all registrants, including those of speakers, to all registrants, unless you select to opt out. You will have an opportunity to opt out of having your email address shared on the registration form. Use the registration form to indicate if you want to opt out of sharing your email address.

Whova App: How to Add or Modify Your Profile

Our app, Whova, has both a desktop version and a mobile version.  This year, the mobile version will get the most traffic. Search for Whova on your app store, and then for “38th Annual Oregon Rural Health Conference.”  Your invitation code has been emailed to you – please ask Laura Potter for it if you need it. If you were a speaker last year, your profile will already be there, and you can modify it as you wish.
