The NE Office of Rural Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, Health Resources and Services Administration, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture invites you to a “Rural Health Funding Summit.”  This is a special event for rural health care providers and organizations and a great opportunity to sit down with funders to express your needs and identify resources.  In a roundtable format, we will actively seek resolutions to funding needs.  We encourage all providers, health care administrators, and financing officials to attend.




Please try to attend this free event in person so you can interact with individuals who can discuss your current challenges and look for solutions.  If you cannot attend in person, you will be able to view the morning activities through telehealth.  Attached is a ‘draft’ agenda of the Nebraska Collaborative Rural Health Funding Summit.

- Rural Healthcare Landscape in Nebraska
