URGENT: Pharmaceutical companies are pushing a bill that would cripple the ability of payers to negotiate drug prices. Tell your representatives to say NO to big pharma. 

Why Attend the 2016 N.C. Rural Assembly? Because It’s Good for Your Health.

September 01, 2016

North Carolina’s fiscal health depends on two things: lowering the cost of healthcare, and figuring out how to provide better healthcare to people who need it. The upcoming 2016 N.C. Rural Assembly addresses both.

Are you a rural North Carolinian who wants to know why good healthcare is hard to come by? A rural business wanting better ways to keep your employees healthy?

You can get answers on September 26th and 27th at the Rural Center’s 2016 conference, the Rural Assembly. (You’ll have to travel to Raleigh to do it...but oh, well. Nothing’s perfect.)

In two days of panels and talks by experts in health, education, and public administration from all across the state, you’ll get to know “the intersection of rural health and economic development” — in other words, the issues that affect your health and your wallet, and, just maybe, how you can help change them for the better.

(In case you need further incentive, they also invited Gov. McCrory...AND Attorney General Cooper. Want to take bets on who shows up?)

Register now for the Rural Assembly on September 26th and 27th.
