The IRHA introduces 

"Iowa Rural Health Conversations - IRHA Summer Series"  

The Iowa Rural Health Association presents “Rural Health Conversations.” The format for the Conversations will be a conference call. The speaker will use the first 30-40 minutes to share key information on the stated topic, including what is being done in Iowa and what individuals can do. The remaining 10-15 minutes of the conversations will be an interactive time which participants will be encouraged to ask questions or share experiences on the topic. Rural Health Conversations are free of charge to all participants, thanks to the generous support of the Iowa Department of Public Health Office of Rural Health.
