VNAA has been very active on rural and underserved health issues and there is more to come.

At the 2012 VNAA Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Dr. Mary Wakefield, RN, Administrator of HRSA spoke about their mission which includes focusing on healthcare gaps for people who are uninsured, isolated or medically vulnerable and providing leadership for training and supporting health professions.

In May 2012, Margaret Franckhauser, CEO of Central New Hampshire VNA and Hospice, represented VNAA at a meeting of the White House Rural Council of which HRSA is a member. As a follow up to that meeting, VNAA sent a comprehensive letter to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services with specific recommendations about how to reduce barriers to care and foster innovation.
