Rural Health Care Symposium Presentation Downloads

Welcome to CHA ’s 2010 Rural Health Care Symposium presentation download page. To promote “green” efforts and minimize waste, we will not be providing preprinted handouts at the event this year. Instead, we are providing presentations received to date for you to download in advance and bring with you to the symposium. Also, please know that all the presentations will be available on a symposium CD that you will receive when you check-in.
