Officers & Committees

All administration positions in the Alabama Rural Health Association are voluntary with the exception being the Executive Director which is funded by a temporary grant from the National Rural Health Association.  ARHA would like to thank these volunteers for their exceptional showing of concern for the health of Alabama's rural citizens.  ARHA would also like to extend an invitation to others (individuals, students, and organizations) to join ARHA and become active in shaping the future of rural healthcare in Alabama.
