Nevada Rural Health Day

The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) sets aside the third Thursday of every November to celebrate National Rural Health Day.

Coinciding with National Rural Health Day, Nevada's governor signs a proclamation proclaiming a date in November as Nevada Rural Health Day. The Nevada State Office of Rural Health celebrates Nevada Rural Health Day with a yearly summit to educate rural stakeholders regarding rural health issues specific to Nevada.

Another key component of The Rural Health Day Summit is honoring those who provide care to Nevada's rural citizens.
