Pledge to Partner.

We want to transform National Rural Health Day (NRHD) into a year-long commitment to bring collective focus to specific healthcare issues facing rural communities across the United States.

We’re asking you to begin new conversations about the power of pioneering rural partnerships.

We’re asking all rural health stakeholders to inspire communities across the country to address and resolve their most challenging population health issues. Make a promise to stay informed and involved with NOSORH and SORHs in 2017, helping to support their combined missions.

Lead change in your community that can make a difference for 62 million people. Learn more about the Pledge to Partner at the conclusion of each NRHD WebSight or ask a representative from NOSORH or your SORH for more information.
