New Membership Dues Structure

To better serve our members and the residents of New York State,
starting October 1st, 2019, NYSARH will be implementing
a new membership dues structure.

Rural Health Policy Institute
Feb 11-13, 2020 Washington, D.C.

Rural health is having a moment. Let’s turn that into momentum.

Join NRHA and hundreds of rural health advocates from across the nation for the largest rural advocacy event in the country, NRHA’s 31st Rural Health Policy Institute, Feb. 11-13 in D.C.

Advocacy Day is Tuesday February 4th, 2020 in Albany, NY 

Come join your rural health advocate colleagues on Tuesday, February 4th, 2020, at the NYS Association for Rural Health ALBANY ADVOCACY DAY.

This is an incredible opportunity to make a first impression regarding rural health and the challenges NYS rural communities face. Many of Albany’s leaders are not familiar with
rural issues and NYSARH members will be some of the first voices they will hear.


The New York State Association for Rural Health is a not-for-profit, non-partisan, grassroots membership organization working to preserve and improve health and human services in rural New York State. NYSARH is a member of the National Rural Health Association.


Membership benefits include:

  • Networking opportunities

  • Discounts on the NYSARH conference and other events

  • Legislative advocacy /awareness of state and federal rural health issues
