Hot Off the Presses
1. The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy is pleased to announce several organizational changes. We have established an Administrative Operations Division and have elevated the Policy Research Team to division status. In addition, the word “Federal” has been added to the beginning of our name to reinforce the statutory charge in our authorizing language (Section 711 of the Social Security Act) to advise the Secretary and others in the Department on rural health issues. For more information about the Office, please visit the FORHP website at http://www.hrsa.gov/ruralhealth/. For more information about the organizational changes, the Federal Register Notice can be found here.
