Yesterday was National Rural Health Day, a day that "Celebrates the Power of Rural" by honoring the selfless, community-minded, "can do" spirit that prevails in rural America, bringing to light the unique healthcare challenges that rural citizens face, and showcasing the efforts of rural health professionals, State Offices of Rural Health, and other rural stakeholders to address those challenges.
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed a Rural Health website that highlights challenges and successes in rural public health. NACCHO appreciates the work that rural health departments do every day to protect people in their communities and keep them safe. NACCHO's Rural Health Section provides ways for rural public health professionals to connect and learn from each other.
