Stories of the River: From Source to Sea

April 27-29, 2022

This year we are using the metaphor of the river to talk about honoring our history and that of the community, bringing tributaries together in building an effective team, navigating transitions, rapids and other turns in the river – ensuring our legacy and preparing for when the salmon return. You can probably think of other ways the river is a metaphor for rural health professions education!

Come share your stories! Join us in exploring the implications for health professions education and training in rural places. Please visit the Hood River RTT website for a sneak preview and self-guided tour.
