Public Hearings

The purpose of the public hearings is to gather input from residents about health and health care in their communities. The Rural Health Care Delivery Work Group will use community input from these hearings to develop an approach to improve health and well-being for the Mid-Shore and other rural communities in Maryland. Members of the Rural Health Work Group, staff of MHCC, and our research team will attend the hearings.
