Each year the NOSORH Board of Directors meets to review the needs of SORH, examine trends in rural health that impact SORH, and assess how to increase the value of NOSORH services with an eye to planning NOSORH activities and initiatives. A two-year strategic plan was drafted for approval by the Board at the beginning of the year and the elements of the plan were reviewed at each of the SORH regional meetings over the summer. Last month, the Board adopted 7 key strategies to build the capacity of NOSORH and SORH. New services will include a SORH Leaders Institute, resources to increase the impact of the “Power of Rural” and National Rural Health Day campaign, and a strategy which will ensure high-value educational resources. “The Board is always willing to contribute their expertise and insight, which I think is the most important factor in ensuring NOSORH is on track with its work,” said Teryl Eisinger, NOSORH Executive Director.
