Rural Health Leaders: Speaker Spotlight Helmsley Charitable Trust

At SDAHO’s Rural Health Leaders Conference, attendees will gain practical guidance in healthcare issues uniquely focused on rural health. This conference will bring industry experts to speak on South Dakota specific rural health priorities – workforce, behavioral health and facility infrastructure. Participants will learn new models of care, innovative strategies, grant opportunities and receive updates on current and future rural health regulations.

In 2009, the Helmsley Charitable Trust created its Rural Healthcare Program to improve access to and quality of care in the upper Midwest.  This program focuses on the most medically underserved area in the U.S., the upper Midwest, due to its pronounced gaps in healthcare access and a relative lack of private funding.  Join Scott Johnson, Program Officer for the Helmsley Charitable Trust, as he shares best practices on how rural facilities can partner with the Trust.  He will also explore several innovations under way in South Dakota, and the Midwest, and their intended impact to improve healthcare delivery.

We welcome you to join SDAHO June 9 and 10 in Pierre, SD. The Rural Health Leaders Conference is designed for healthcare leaders focused on improving health in rural South Dakota. Targeted audience includes hospital CEO’s, CNO’s, long-term care administrators, CFO’s, health care board members, and other leaders within hospital and post-acute care setting.
