NOV 21—2019 National Rural Health Day
Plug into the power of rural!
Each year the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health and its partners set aside the third Thursday of November to celebrate National Rural Health Day (NRHD)—this year it's November 21. National Rural Health Day is an opportunity to “Celebrate the Power of Rural” by honoring the selfless, community-minded, “can do” spirit that prevails in rural America, gives us a chance to bring to light the unique healthcare challenges that rural citizens face, and showcase the efforts of rural healthcare providers, all State Offices of Rural Health and other rural stakeholders to address those challenges. #powerofrural
