National Rural Health Association

The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) is a national nonprofit membership organization that brings together thousands of members across the United States. The association’s mission is to provide leadership on rural health issues through advocacy, communications, education and research. NRHA membership consists of a diverse collection of individuals and organizations, all of whom share the common bond of an interest in rural health.

National Organization of State Office of Rural Health

The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) was established in 1995 to assist State Offices of Rural Health (SORH) in their efforts to improve access to, and the quality of, health care for nearly 61 million rural Americans. NOSORH enhances the capacity of SORH to do this by supporting the development of state and community rural health leaders; creating and facilitating state, regional and national partnerships that foster information sharing and spur rural health-related programs/activities; and enhancing access to quality healthcare services in rural communities. We have assembled a Coordinating Center with expertise in policy implementation and health legislation and will work with NOSORH to conduct a number of activities for individual projects and across projects.

Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES)

CARES helps communities measure performance and identify how to improve cardiac arrest survival rates. By joining CARES, communities gain more than just access to information that will help them improve performance and save lives. They also contribute to one of the largest EMS registries in the world, and one of the few that also includes patient outcome information from hospitals. Those features enable CARES data to be used to conduct vital research that furthers our knowledge of cardiac arrest treatment and saves countless lives for years to come

UW Global & Rural Health Fellowship

The UW Global & Rural Health Fellowship in Internal Medicine is a two-year program in clinical and research training that may be incorporated into the training of any licensed internal medicine trained Rural PRO-CARE fellow. During the first year, fellows provide direct clinical care at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage or with Indian Health Services at Pine Ridge Reservation in S. Dakota. In their second and/or optional third year, fellows will work on their Rural PRO-CARE research. Fellows will benefit from a structured curriculum including Global & Rural Health Leadership course and a network of trainees focused on both afferent (global-to-rural) and efferent (rural-to-global) reciprocal innovation. Dr. Laura Romcevich in the Training Core of the Coordinating Center is Director of this Fellowship program.
