National Rural Health Day (NRHD)

National Rural Health Day, Celebrating the Power of Rural!The National Organization of State Offices of Rural set aside the third Thursday of every November to celebrate National Rural Health Day. First and foremost, National Rural Health Day is an opportunity to "Celebrate the Power of Rural" by honoring the selfless, community-minded, "can do" spirit of that prevails in rural America. But it also gives us a chance to bring to light the unique healthcare challenges that rural citizens face – and showcase the efforts of rural healthcare providers, State Offices of Rural Health and other rural stakeholders to address those challenges.
