The IRHA introduces 

"Iowa Rural Health Conversations - IRHA Summer Series"  

 

The IRHA distributed a survey to members and stakeholders.  After assessing the survey, we are ready to do some new things!

The conversations will be via conference call.  The format is: Speaker/s give 40 minutes of key information on a specific topic, including what is being done in Iowa and what can be done by individuals on the call. Then, to make the call interactive, there will be a 10-15 questions and comment session. The topics selected are those that ranked highest in the survey.  All conference calls are scheduled the second Thursday of the month 12 noon to 1 pm.
