National Rural Health Day 2018

Posted by on November 8th, 2018 Posted in: Consumer Health, Public Health


November 15, 2018 is National Rural Health Day. The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health reserves the third Thursday of November to “Celebrate the Power of Rural”. National Rural Health Day is an opportunity to honor rural communities and highlight the unique healthcare challenges they face. Visit the National Rural Health Day website to learn more about how you can get involved. You can even share how you will celebrate National Rural Health Day.

If you want to learn more about rural health, visit MedlinePlus to review their topic page on Rural Health Concerns. The Rural Health Information Hub also has a wealth of information about this topic, including data and statistics about rural issues, state specific rural health information, and funding opportunities for organizations working to improve rural health.

Once you have celebrated National Rural Health Day in November, join the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region on December 11, 2018 at 2 PM ET for the class, From the Mountains to the Sea: Rural Health Issues and Resources. This class will describe hallmarks of rural America, identify other access challenges of living in rural communities, and equip participants with tools to service the health information needs of those living in rural communities.

You can also see the presentation slides from a presentation given on October 27th, 2018 by the Middle Atlantic Region’s Health Professions Coordinator at the New York State Association of Rural Health annual conference. This presentation was titled, Trusted Resources to Support Rural Health and focused on resources that can support public health initiatives in rural communities.
