Congratulations, Jim

Congratulations to HGH CEO/Administrator Jim Parrish, who has been accepted in the National Rural Health Association’s (NRHA) Rural Health Fellows Program for 2015. Jim applied to take part in the year-long, intensive program and came through a crowded field to land a spot among a dozen individuals who all share a mutual concern for the future of rural healthcare. During his skill-building year, Jim and the other Rural Health Fellows will participate in three advanced leadership training seminars, attend several of NRHA's educational conferences, take part in monthly conference calls on rural health leadership, policy and strategic planning, and participate in a guided group project that will involve Fellows in the process of rural health policy analysis on a national level. Jim said the program is very rigorous but also very motivating. "I have been grateful for this program and the training I have received to help continue to move our rural health policies and programs forward.” Great job!
