National Rural Health Day is Nov. 16

National Rural Health Day, Nov. 16 this year, was created by the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health in 2010 to highlight efforts to improve health in rural communities while acknowledging the unique challenges in accessing health care services.

The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy will organize NRHD events, including a series of Twitter chats and webinars in the days leading up to Nov. 16. On National Rural Health Day, the office will provide a day-long webcast of a summit that includes speeches and panel discussions of current efforts to increase accessibility to health care in rural areas. Click here to see the full schedule and to find out more information about participating in the Twitter chats or registering for the webinars.
