Each year, the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) and rural-focused organizations across the United States set aside the third Thursday of November (Nov. 17, 2022) to recognize National Rural Health Day (NRHD). Now in its 12th year, NRHD is an opportunity to celebrate the #PowerOfRural and honor the individuals and organizations serving the health needs of nearly 61 million people living in rural America.

On Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. ET, NOSORH will host a special web event - Collaboration Carpool: Conversations with Mission-Minded Rural Stakeholders. The live event will feature the following national, regional, and state leaders/influencers representing different rural stakeholder groups: 

  • United States Department of Agriculture (USDA): Kellie Kubena, USDA, and Armando Valdez, Colorado USDA
  • Broadband: Shirley Bloomfield, NTCA - The Rural Broadband Association, and Gary Johnson, Paul Bunyan Communications
  • Philanthropy: Anne Kubisch, The Ford Family Foundation, and Walter Panzirer, The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust
