On October 26-27, the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) hosted a two-day New SORH Orientation for new and existing SORH directors and staff. Attendees included six directors and key staff representing the states of: Florida, North Carolina, Texas, Maine, Iowa, and Ohio.

Organized by Keith Midberry and other members of FORHP, the Orientation included presentations from FORHP, the Bureau of Health Workforce, Grants Management, USDA, and many more key partners. The goal of the Orientation is to provide an overview of the many national rural resources available to SORHs and allow directors to meet with their project officers. Attendees indicated a 58% increase in content knowledge after participation.

In addition to the New SORH Orientation, NOSORH has released an updated version of the SORH Manual, including new links, updated contact information, and more. You can access the SORH Manual on the NOSORH website.
