National Rural Health Day — November 21, 2019

National Rural Health Day

The third Thursday in November has been set aside to highlight rural communities as wonderful places to live and work, increase awareness of rural health-related issues, and promote the efforts of State Offices of Rural Health and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health in addressing these issues.

Special Thanks

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2018 event. The following video features pictures from grade-school children and photos of rural North Dakota submitted for the 2018 National Rural Health Day celebration.
