‘Working together to enhance rural health in California’
The California State Rural Health Association (CSRHA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots organization that works to improve the health of rural Californians and the quality and accessibility of the heath care they receive. CSRHA brings together health care providers, consumers, educators, researchers, public health and economic development agencies and others to work on a variety of issues related to preserving and enhancing the health of rural California.
Our Mission is to link rural individuals and organizations together to facilitate information exchange, collaboration, and advocacy to promote healthy rural communities.
The interests of rural people must not be lost or dismissed because of distance, geographic isolation and lack of concentrated resources. CSRHA works to improve the health of rural Californians and the quality and accessibility of the health care they receive.
Functions of CSRHA:
ADVOCACY: CSRHA works to facilitate information exchange, communication and collaboration among healthcare providers, government agencies, rural communities and other organizations. CSRHA works closely with its members, the California Legislative Rural Caucus and state and regional partner organizations to advocate for policy improvements on behalf of rural California. Advocacy opportunities are provided each year on behalf of members, providing a forum for open dialogue with elected officials and policy makers.
PUBLICATIONS: Policy briefs, rural fact sheets, toolkits and resource guides are produced annually by CSRHA to provide information and tools useful to rural stakeholders and policy makers.
EDUCATION & TRAINING: CSRHA acts as a vehicle to educate rural communities about the effects of policy, legislation and regulation on the health of rural communities. CSRHA facilitates an Annual Rural Health Conference, quarterly Regional Rural Roundtables, Webinars and various other seminars each year. Workshop topics include state and federal policy, healthcare financing issues, health information technology (HIT), best practices in rural communities and much more.
