2020 Minnesota Rural Health Conference Canceled

Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of the participants at the Minnesota Rural Health Conference is always our first priority and, due to the uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are cancelling the 2020 Conference scheduled for June 15-16. The theme for this year was aptly chosen, "Charting the Course for Change", and that is what we must do.

While we and our partners look forward to this event every year, social distancing must be our primary professional responsibility. We want to thank and honor our many participants from across all health professions and organizations who are working so diligently and heroically within their communities to deal with COVID-19.

We also want to thank our many partners who already invested financial support towards this year's conference; we appreciate your partnership.

Finally, we hope we can all come together once again in 2021 to renew our relationships and to recharge our constant pursuit of a sustainable and thriving rural health system. #Powerof Rural
