The Virginia Rural Health Association (VRHA) is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization working for the 2.5 million people who call rural Virginia their home.
Our mission is to improve the health of rural Virginians through education, advocacy, and fostering cooperative partnerships.
VRHA holds an annual conference and other events which allows attendees to acquire tools and resources which will help them in their jobs and communities.
VRHA produces the Weekly Update, an e-newsletter and the Virginia Rural Health News, a bi-annual print newsletter. These publications allow VRHA members to stay informed about state and national rural health issues.
VRHA works with elected officials at the local, state and federal levels to help them understand how the decisions they make affects the quality of health care provided in rural Virginia.
