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!
