Who is the Rural Health Association of Tennessee?

Founded in 1995, The Rural Health Association of Tennessee (RHA of TN) is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization of individuals and organizations committed to improving the health of rural Tennesseans. Our members of rural health care providers, school health professionals, and others who care about rural health, have worked to affect positive change in the health and well-being of all rural people in Tennessee. By proactively involving our members, partner organizations, and policymakers, we identify rural health concerns and work to resolve those issues through service, education, and advocacy.
