Maryland National Rural Health​ Day

Since 2010, the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health, the 50 State Offices of Rural Health, and rural health stakeholders from across the country have set aside the third Thursday of November to celebrate National Rural Health Day (NRHD) and promote the “Power of Rural,” bringing much needed attention to the ongoing efforts to communicate, educate, collaborate, and innovate to improve the health of an estimated 57 million rural Americans.

In Maryland, from McHenry to Tyaskin and Rising Sun to Najemoy, the sense of community felt throughout our rural counties demonstrates the “Power of Rural.”  This state’s rural towns and regions are prime examples of how partnerships and resourcefulness can be used as tools in improving the health of rural populations.  Using these assets, we must continue to address the continued needs of rural communities as noted in Maryland’s Rural Health Plan.Check back often for updates for 2021​
