COVID-19 Information

Health care leaders work every day to ensure the safety of their patients and team, and the AHA prioritizes the same goal – your health and safety. The AHA continuously monitors local, state and federal guidelines and determines safety protocols and requirements for all face-to-face events. Additional details on safety protocols will be provided closer to the start date of the AHA Rural Health Care Leadership Conference.


In the unlikely event that we should have to cancel the event, attendees can request a full refund of registration fees or transfer the fees for credit to the 2025 AHA Rural Health Care Leadership Conference. AHA is not responsible for any nonrefundable travel or lodging expenses in the event of program cancellation.


If you are no longer able to attend the conference you can send a substitute, even at the last minute. If you must cancel, your request for a refund – minus a $250 processing fee – must be made in writing to no later than January 19, 2024. Cancellations made after January 19 are not eligible for a refund.
