The Second Annual Rural Healthcare Symposium is part of an annual effort to bring attention to the national rural healthcare crisis. Key topics to be explored at this year’s daylong conference include: the opioid epidemic and addiction treatments, an overview of current rural healthcare legislation and public policy, the impact of technology on rural healthcare delivery, the economic realities facing rural providers and an inside look at the operations of rural healthcare facilities. There will be a lunchtime address by Georgia Sen. Dean Burke, a physician and rural health advocate from Bainbridge. Plenary session addresses will be provided by Dr. Bruce B. Struminger, the associate director of Project Echo, an internationally renowned telehealth initiative, and James B. Langford, the executive director of the Georgia Prevention Project, a statewide drug prevention program aimed at teens and young adults. Panelists include representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Rural Health Association, the Georgia Health Policy Center, the Georgia Hospital Association, Georgia Medicaid and several regional hospitals as well as academic experts from around the country.
