Regional Workshop

NCRHW provides two regional workshops each year available to anyone interested in learning about NCRHW. There is no cost associated with hosting a regional workshop. The National Center invites any state interested in hosting a workshop to contact the staff. The workshops are designed for professionals from agencies that plan to be involved in providing technical assistance to local communities in any of the four areas of focus of the National Center. For more information, please see the below example agenda and flyer for a Regional Workshop.
Example for Regional Workshop

State-specific or Organization-Specific Workshops

If a state or organization would like a workshop specifically for that state or organization, a workshop can be specially designed and presented. The participants at these workshop would be determined by the specific state or organization. There is a cost associated for these workshops which would vary based on location and attendance. An example of a state-specific workshop is a workshop designed to cover community health needs assessment only; the state invites the non-profit rural and critical access hospitals to attend.


The National Center for Rural Health Works offers regional, state-specific and organizational-specific workshops to train users and promote the tools and templates created by the center. NCRHW provides tools and templates in the following four areas, Economic Impact, Community Health Needs Assessment, Rural Health Needs Analysis, and EMS Systems Development.


If you would like to schedule a workshop, please contact our staff.

Basic economic impact methodology could be applied to many areas

We originally partnered with the NCRHW to conduct economic impact of our new school, but soon realized that the basic economic impact methodology could be applied to many areas. We partnered with both NCAHD and NCRHW in our efforts to support our OneHealth initiatives by measuring the economic impact of both veterinarians and primary care physicians throughout our Appalachian region, which was a keystone tool/products that launched many of our other activities.

NCRHW is and will continue to be an important voice

The National Center for Rural Health Works is an invaluable resource to the AHA and its 2100 rural hospital members. AHA has collaborated with NCRHW for many years on multiple projects. For example, NCRHW was referenced in our TrendWatch, “Beyond Health Care: The Economic Contribution of Hospitals,” and featured in our two-part webinar series on the “Economic Impact of Rural Hospitals and Health Networks.” NCRHW is and will continue to be an important voice on the economic significance of rural hospitals to the communities they serve.

NCRHW now a partner of VCOM

With nearly 60% of our graduates becoming primary care physicians and over 50% practice in a rural or underserved setting, our school fully appreciates the economic and employment impact our students and schools have upon the nation. With NCRHW now a partner of VCOM, we’ll share with faculty, students and stakeholders NCRHW’s vast resources through our vast education network.
