The Sustaining and Increasing Access to Care in Rural Communities Learning Collaborative explores community needs, growth planning, and financing options for health centers serving rural communities. Through a series of four one-hour interactive webinars, this Learning Collaborative addresses challenges and opportunities FQHCs face in communities experiencing hospital distress and closure; examine the impact of telehealth on care delivery; and address financial capacity, sustainability, and financing options for FQHCs seeking to expand their impact in rural America.
