KRHA executive director, Tina McCormick says that "The Kentucky rural health association has been a 501c6 non profit since its inception. We are excited to change our status to a 501c3 in order to better serve all Kentuckians. Our mission is improving the health of Kentuckians through education and advocacy and we feel this change in our non profit status will allow our outreach to grow while obtaining additional funding to support those goals". This will be possible because contributions to KRHA are now fully deductible as charitable contributions.
The Kentucky Rural Health Association (KRHA) educates providers and consumers on rural health issues and advocates actions by private and public leaders to assure equitable access to health care for rural Kentuckians. It has sponsored conferences, discussions and workshops on current topics pertaining to rural health. Whether it provides Medicaid updates to rural members, works to recruit health professionals to rural areas, or sends representatives to meetings of the National Rural Health Association, the KRHA has been faithful to its two goals of educating members on rural health issues; and serving as an advocate for equitable access to health care for rural Kentucky.
