After a thorough examination of the widespread health risks posed by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the latest guidance from the CDC, the 2020 Michigan Rural Health Conference May 13-14 in Grand Rapids has been cancelled. 

All registration fees will be refunded at 100%.

Those with hotel reservations with the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel and used our block code will automatically be canceled. 

Please know that we did not make this decision lightly. The health and safety of our guests and communities is a top priority, and thus we have taken this proactive step. We wish everyone well going forward as we do our part in addressing the country's major public health crisis.

Thank you for your continued support of the Michigan Center for Rural Health and we look forward to seeing you at events in the future. Questions can be directed to Victoria Lantzy at
