National Rural Health Day

The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health sets aside the third Thursday of every November to celebrate National Rural Health Day.

National Rural Health Day (NRHD) is an opportunity to “Celebrate the Power of Rural” by honoring the selfless, community-minded spirit that prevails in rural America. NRHD showcases the efforts of rural healthcare providers, State Offices of Rural Health and other rural stakeholders to address the unique healthcare challenges that rural citizens face today and into the future.

In honor of National Rural Health Day on Nov. 16, 2023, our office will celebrate by holding "Come and Go" receptions on our campuses with the opportunity to vote for the winners of the annual Rural Kansas Photography Contest.

Sign-up for Photo Contest email alerts and a link to vote for the winners.
