Seeking to improve the health of rural Virginians through education, advocacy, and cooperative partnerships
The Virginia Rural Health Association (VRHA) Student Chapter at EVMS will be an extension of the Virginia Rural Health Association. This group will remain in close relationship and work in partnership with the VRHA in order to improve the health of rural Virginians through education, advocacy, and fostering cooperative partnerships. The group will accomplish these goals by hosting guest speakers, attending rural health conferences, and participating in service activities specifically benefiting rural communities.
This organization is open to all students. Students do not have to be VRHA members to participate in activities of the VRHA chapter at EVMS. However, VRHA student membership is only $10, and there are some great benefits to joining the VRHA!
If you have any questions about the club or would like to join, please reach out via the club email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
