NRHA honors congressional rural health champions

The National Rural Health Association, in conjunction with its 26th annual Rural Health Policy Institute, is pleased to announce the winners of its 2015 Legislative Awards, which recognize outstanding leadership in rural health issues by both members of Congress and congressional staff. This year’s member recipients are Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.) and Rep. Adrian Smith (R-Neb.). Rep. Kind will accept his award and speak to more than 400 rural health advocates next week at NRHA’s Policy Institute Feb. 3-5 in D.C. Staff awards will be presented to Brian Perkins of the Office of Sen. Jerry Moran and Colin Brainard of the Office of Rep. Lynn Jenkins. “NRHA greatly appreciates the hard work and dedication displayed by this year’s Legislative Award winners,” says Maggie Elehwany, NRHA government affairs and advocacy vice president.
