Rural Healthcare Training Weekend set for Saturday, Sunday

Rural Healthcare Training Weekend is set for this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 22 and 23, at Lincoln County High School.

Rural Healthcare Training Weekend is a fun-filled weekend of education that provides healthcare providers such as EMT’s, Advanced EMT’s, paramedics, respiratory therapists and nurses the opportunity to obtain up-to-date information in up-and-coming topics and to fulfill regulatory obligations by obtaining education hours.

Fire hours will also be issued to any firefighter that comes to the training.

The weekend allows providers the opportunity to gain 15 hours toward their recertification.

The cost is $40 for pre-registration and $50 at the door.

A continental breakfast, lunch and snacks are included in the registration.

Several vendors will also be onsite for networking.

The Rural Healthcare Training Weekend was started in 2010 with a focus by its founding members to provide a quality education opportunity at a low cost.

The sponsors are Lincoln County EMS, Air Evac Lifeteam, the University of Kentucky, the University of Louisville and Ephraim McDowell Health.
