2020 Nebraska Rural Health Conference – POSTPONED to September 2, 2020

Dear Sponsors, Exhibitors, Speakers and Participants,  

Due to the rapidly unfurling repercussions of the coronavirus outbreak, the NERHA Board of Directors have decided to delay this year’s Nebraska Rural Health Conference. We have made arrangements to hold the conference at the Younes Conference Center on Wednesday, September 2, 2020

As you know, the cases of the coronavirus are increasing across the United States where they appear poised to peak in the coming months. While Nebraska remains a relatively safe location, the NERHA Board of Directors believes that we must do our part in slowing the spread of disease and also to protect the health of our members. In addition, if the number of cases continue to increase many of our member organizations will be in the middle of caring for our rural communities including, our friends and neighbors. Taken together, the Board felt postponement is the only reasonable option at this time.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this brings.We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these issues of rescheduling the conference. We will have additional information regarding refunds, registrations and other logistical items in the coming days but we want to get everyone notified as soon as possible so that you can plan accordinly.   In the meantime, please direct all questions to John Roberts, Executive Director at jroberts@mwhc-inc.com
