Grantmakers In Health, in partnership with the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy and the National Rural Health Association, held the Seventh Annual Public-Private Collaborations in Rural Health meeting May 30-31, 2019 in Washington, DC.

At the first Public-Private Collaborations in Rural Health Meeting in 2013, the Rural Health Philanthropy Partnership convened over 120 public and private foundations, researchers, and policymakers to discuss federal programs and foundation-led innovative initiatives in rural areas. Since then, this annual meeting has been an opportunity to connect, share, and engage in conversations on how combined efforts can yield better outcomes for rural communities. With each passing year, the partnership continues to grow in its efforts to improve rural health.

This year’s meeting explored new territory; continued to strengthen current activities; and leveraged regional and national partnerships between foundations, researchers, and federal partners. Participants had the opportunity to engage program and policy experts on issues and projects relevant to improving rural health and efforts.
