We are thrilled to announce the 2021 New England Rural Health Conference –  Rural Resiliency: Innovation and the Journey Forward on November 3rd and 4th at the Sunday River Resort in Newry, Maine.

This has been a challenging year for all of us but, the fall conference gives us hope and excitement for in-person connection and learning that we have been so greatly missing. So many innovative programs and opportunities have arisen from fighting the pandemic and we want to highlight the rural strength and creativity that has clearly shown through.

Our conference is an opportunity for rural healthcare professionals, hospital administrators, educators, students and community leaders to learn from experts in rural topics, and to network with each other. Designed to involve all sectors that impact the health of people in rural New England, this multidisciplinary event gives attendees the opportunity to delve into specific areas of interest or participate in sessions spanning a variety of topic areas. 

This event is designed to meet the needs of those interested in improving the health and wellbeing of our region's rural communities. Over the past 20+ years, the annual conference has become one of the Association's largest events, attracting over 300 participants. While we aren’t sure if we will be able to safely gather this many people by November, we are working to plan for a hybrid model if necessary.

Stay tuned for Call for Presenters, Posters, & Sponsors, and more details coming soon. We can’t wait to be back at Sunday River with all of you!
