Wisconsin Celebrates Rural Health Day, November 16

August 04, 2017

Join WI-ORH celebration by planning National Rural Health Day events in your community

Wisconsin’s rural communities are wonderful places to live, work and visit. They are also communities where health care providers deliver top-notch, innovative, affordable and holistic primary care—a model for the rest of the country as America transitions to a population, wellness-based system of health care.

While there is a great deal of innovation going on in rural health care, rural communities face unique challenges: provider shortages, an older population and lack of transportation. National Rural Health Day, November 16, 2017, is an opportunity to recognize the challenges and celebrate our successes.

Join the Wisconsin Office of Rural Health’s (WI-ORH) celebration by planning Rural Health Day events in your community. Download a menu of activities to choose from at http://worh.org/national-rural-health-day and put your own ideas into action.
