The NC Office of Rural Health Meets on Healthcare at COA
College of The Albemarle (COA) prides itself on serving the needs of the region and were honored to have special guests from the North Carolina Office of Rural Health, on campus, June 5, to discuss availability of healthcare services, grant opportunities and concerns facing northeast North Carolina.

“Our northeast region of the state has unique strengths, as well as concerns, in providing healthcare services and education for health careers in our area, especially related to our rural and socioeconomic make-up and close proximity to the larger Virginia urban health market. Being able to understand some of the resources available to us through the State Office of Rural Health, as well as communicating some of the challenges we face in healthcare as a region, was a positive step in getting our concerns and needs known to policy makers. I was glad we were able to emphasize our need for support at the state level for using our limited rural resources wisely through collaboration across the region,” said Robin Harris MSN, MSEd, CNE, RN, Dean of Health Sciences and Wellness programs at COA.
