The third annual National Rural Health Day will be held this year on Thursday, November 21, 2013. Events recognizing this important day that “Celebrate the Power of Rural” will take place in our state and in every state throughout the nation on that day.
National Rural Health Day was created as a way to showcase rural America and increase awareness of rural health-related issues. “National Rural Health Day gives NOSORH and its partners the opportunity to ‘Celebrate the Power of Rural’ and showcase the good works of America’s 59.5 million rural citizens,” notes NOSORH Director Teryl Eisinger. “It also allows us to highlight the unique healthcare issues being faced by rural citizens and promote the efforts of NOSORH, State Offices of Rural Health (SORHs) and their partners in addressing those issues.”
