2021 Rural Community Health Worker Conference-Cancelled

The Rural CHW conference scheduled for October 15, 2021 has been postponed due to the recent spike of the COVID-19 Delta variant cases. The conference committee will monitor the situation over the coming months and will be working to host the conference in the later part of Spring 2022. The safety of our conference participants, speakers, and the community are our highest priority.

Check back to this website for more information about details for the next in person meeting in 2022. If you have reserved a room at the Hampton Inn for Oct 14-15, 2021, you will need to cancel this reservation.  Thank you for your understanding.
