Rice has a bachelor of science degree in pharmacy and is a fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives. He also is the chair-elect of the board of directors of the North Carolina Hospital Association.

The 29-member board meets four times a year and includes physicians, administrators, nurses, employers, a labor representative, health plan leaders, quality experts, ethicists, a consumer advocate and educators. They are appointed by the AHA, the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, the American College of Surgeons and the American Dental Association.
