Free webinar Thursday on local collaboration to assess health needs, meet goals and help rural health organizations

In a free webinar at 1 p.m. ET Thursday, viewers will "hear how rural hospitals, community health centers, local public health departments and other rural stakeholders can work together to assess and address their rural communities' health needs," says the Rural Health Information Hub, the producer. "Two innovative rural health organizations will be highlighted that have developed strategies to meet population health goals, address social determinants of health, and improve health outcomes. Solutions to support rural health organizations' financial viability, and lessons learned, will also be shared."

The speakers will be Christie Obenauer, Board Chair of Sakakawea Medical Center in Hazen, N.D., and Toniann Richard, CEO of the Health Care Collaborative of Rural Missouri. While the webinar is free, high-speed internet is required to participate. Connection details will be emailed upon registration. A recording will be available on the RHI Hub afterward.
