During this year's Rural Health Symposium, hospitals will have an opportunity to get to know the newly appointed secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Robert Moser, MD. He will provide an overview of KDHE and the agency's vision of Healthy Kansans Living in Safe and Sustainable Environments. Topics to be discussed will include short-term and long-term goals of KDHE, the proposed reorganization of the Kansas Health Policy Authority, health information exchange and the Kansas Indoor Clean Air Act.
The Rural Health Symposium will be March15 and 16 at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita.
The brochure and online registration are available on the KHA Web site. Questions may be directed to the KHA Education Department at (785) 233-7436.
