This is a day to celebrate the uniqueness and charm of rural America and its citizens. Each state office of rural health will be working to increase awareness for rural healthcare and highlighting the efforts and achievements towards advocacy in rural communities. Below you’ll find a few of the highlights and happenings for this year's celebration. When you visit, you’ll see what else is happening across the country. 

Please share your story with us- we’d love to spread the news about what you're doing.

Thank you for all you do to help us put the focus on rural health in 2020!
