AHA today launched a new suite of resources for rural health care leaders, including an on-demand webinar and playbook. The webinar features rural hospital executives and board leaders discussing how governing boards can work at all levels within their communities to build COVID-19 vaccine confidence for families and communities. The playbook, “Strategies for Rural Health Leaders’ Success in a Post-COVID-19 World,” offers guidance, innovative solutions and tools to encourage administrators, clinical leaders and trustees to think critically about how to approach solutions as the country tries to move beyond the pandemic.
