NRHA Partners Pledge Support during COVID-19

Free rural health COVID-19 “Call First” Communications Toolkit Available

As rural health leaders, the National Rural Health Association (NRHA) knows that you’ve been working diligently on communications regarding important issues such as social distancing, handwashing and overall messaging around practices to flatten the curve. An additional concern is taking all steps possible to not overburden our rural health facilities, while demonstrating leadership in our communities to promote a sense of vigilance, but also an environment of security and calmness.

In this spirit, NRHA through donated services of partner Legato Healthcare Marketing, is providing NRHA members free access to a communications toolkit with messaging focused on:

  • Calling first to determine if you should be seen
  • Your rural hospital/clinic is taking a leadership role to protect your community

Toolkit components – designed to allow customization and branding for your facility — include items such as print and digital ads, radio scripts, social media posts and media materials. Legato is donating its services not only for the production and use of these materials, based on CDC messaging and input from a rural health taskforce, but also for complimentary assistance in helping to download materials. Visit here. When entering this site, you will be asked to provide your email so that updates to the toolkit can be sent to you immediately, allowing you to respond promptly to this ever-changing situation.
