National Rural Health Day

National Rural Health Day Standard Logo

The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health sets aside the third Thursday of every November to celebrate National Rural Health Day. National Rural Health Day is an opportunity to “Celebrate the Power of Rural” by honoring the selfless, community-minded, “can do” spirit that prevails in rural America; gives us a chance to bring to light the unique healthcare challenges that rural citizens face; and showcase the efforts made by rural healthcare providers and stakeholders to address those challenges.

Please visit to see how you can celebrate Alabama's rural communities and take the Power of Rural pledge.
