Last month 11 new SORH directors and staff attended an orientation to HRSA and the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy.  New staff had the opportunity to meet with Associate Administrator Tom Morris, federal project officers from across HRSA, and the National Rural Health Association.   New staff reported that the meeting provided them with new and better direction, taught them more about SORH roles, and definitely expanded their knowledge of relevant federal programs.  Speakers at the meeting provided program overviews and information on issues like rural definitions and health workforce that may be helpful to other SORH staff click here to see HRSA staff and other presentations.
