Federal Office Recaps Rural Health Day Activities

The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy wrapped up a week of recognizing and honoring the heartfelt drive, innovation, and care of providers, administrators, caregivers, researchers, community organizers, and policymakers at every level of government – all working to improve the health and well-being of more than 60 million people living in rural America.

If you missed any of the events, you can come back to view – and share – what happened on HRSA’s page for National Rural Health Day 2023. There, you’ll find:

  • Recordings of events;
  • Federal investments nationally and state-by-state;
  • Infographics describing how HRSA’s investments have been used to address the most pressing issues in rural health;
  • Videos showcasing the work of grantees of the Rural Communities Opioid Response Program;
  • An episode of the Exploring Rural Health podcast with the CEO of the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health, the org that started National Rural Health Day back in 2011.

Happy National Rural Health Day.  We hope to see you again next year and every day in between.
