A working group of the National Rural Health Association, the Frontier Constituency Group represents the health needs of frontier communities.
The Frontier Constituency Group is a working group of the National Rural Health Association. Susan Wilger, NCFC’s director, chairs the Constituency Group.
Members come from a variety of health professions – hospitals, medical practices, public health nurses, emergency medical technicians, state health organizations, research and more. Their common bond is ensuring access to health care in areas with small, isolated populations where there can be great distances to health care facilities.
The group works with others to alert members of their concerns with pending legislation and laws and regulations already in effect that can adversely affect frontier areas.
