Why Rural Health Matters

Staying Current on Rural Health Policies

TRHA is committed to staying abreast of policies surrounding rural health, working directly under the National Rural Health Association and alongside statewide advocacy initiatives addressing Texas rural healthcare. We actively engage with local and state officials to ensure they understand how their policies impact the quality of healthcare in rural Texas.

Engagement with Legislators

Historically, TRHA has hosted and participated in legislative briefings and discussions on rural health issues before the Texas State Legislature. Our efforts support various initiatives and solutions aimed at addressing these challenges.

Rural Health Statistics in Texas

Statistics like these highlight the critical need for dedicated advocacy and support for rural health in Texas. From healthcare professional shortages to hospital closures, the challenges are significant but not insurmountable. By working together, we can address these issues and improve health outcomes for rural communities.
