Membership in the Iowa Rural Health Association

Our organization relies on a broad set of member/partners.  They are the fuel that drives our mission and without them IRHA cannot function.  While members can be organizations or individuals, rural or urban, Iowan or otherwise, they are all committed to vibrant rural places with equal access to health and health care.

Thanks to all of our current Iowa Rural Health Association Members!

The Association provides an opportunity to meet with other health care professionals to share information and experiences. The IRHA is also a communication link with the National Rural Health Association.


Maintaining access to quality health care in rural Iowa is critical. We continue to be challenged by the changes in structures, systems and policies. Learning from each other and working together is important to all of us. Thus is the reason for the rejuvenation of the Iowa Rural Health Association.  For 2024, we are offering new programming for student members, see here for more details!

The Association’s diverse membership shall be composed of honorary members, students and organizations/associations/corporations interested in supporting and providing leadership on rural health issues through communications, education and advocacy.
