The 5th Annual National Rural Health Day is less than a month away and NOSORH wants to celebrate with you! A full day of webcasts and webinars is planned to highlight the amazing work of the State Offices and our partners including the Rural Assistance Center and the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy.  Speakers and presenters are lined up to speak on a variety of topics such as Rural Health Delivery System Reform, Veterans Issues in Rural America, and Innovative Models of Care. Look for information coming out soon about times and links for these webinars.

As you know, NOSORH is collecting stories on “Real Doc Hollywoods and Rural Healers” and results of community health needs assessments. There is still time to make your submissions. Follow this link and tell us who has made a positive impact on their local community, brought services that may not have been there before, has shown local leadership, or has been a dependable partner to make a change for the better. This is an opportunity to showcase that individual and help NOSORH promote dedicated care providers around the nation.  To share information on community health needs assessments contact Kassie Clarke to write a potential press release on that work.

NOSORH is tracking the efforts that you are currently making and needs your help to “shout out” about for you on National Rural Health Day. Follow this link and let us know what your plans are for NRHD and if you need assistance to celebrate. If you received a Governor’s Proclamation, let us know! If you planned a photo or video contest, let us know!
