2018 National Rural Health Day logo

National Rural Health Day is celebrated the third Thursday of every November.

Rural communities are wonderful places to live and work. But these communities also have unique healthcare needs which is why the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health sets aside this day to celebrate rural health with all of its partners. National Rural Health Day is not only an opportunity to “Celebrate the Power of Rural” (#powerofrural) by honoring rural American communities, it also gives us a chance to highlight the unique healthcare challenges that rural residents face and showcase the efforts of those addressing these challenges.
