The 2019 National Rural Health Association Policy Institute is in Washington, D.C. on February 5-8, and NOSORH has resources to help you prepare for the conference. NOSORH will be hosting the webinar “Preparing to Engage with Legislators & Policymakers” on January 17th at 1:00 pm ET. This webinar will focus on understanding the environment on Capitol Hill, SORH legislative priorities for the new Congress, and how to “orient” new congressional members (and resources available) and conduct a Hill visit with state partners. Click here to register for the webinar.
In addition, one-page state profiles, like this one from South Carolina, are available to help SORH document the impact of their work. For help in completing your state’s profile, please contact Donna Pfaendtner at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, January 22, 2019. A SORH factsheet will be provided for your use at the Policy Institute and Hall Render staff will be available to join you on Hill visits.
While in D.C., be sure to attend the NOSORH Members Meeting on Tuesday, February 5th at 6:00 pm ET in the Capitol Room. Stay tuned for more details about this meeting.
