The Arkansas Rural Health Partnership was named Arkansas' 2022 Community Star, the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) recently announced.
On the third Thursday of November, NOSORH leads National Rural Health Day (NRHD), an annual celebration that honors those serving the vital health needs of nearly 61 million rural Americans. In conjunction with NRHD, NOSORH made a nationwide call for nominations, seeking individuals, organizations, and coalitions making a positive impact in rural communities.
The Arkansas Rural Health Partnership is featured in the 2022 edition of the Community Star eBook, which is available on the official NRHD website, PowerofRural.org, as of November 17, 2022. The eBook showcases the stories of Community Stars from 48 states, exemplifying this year's NRHD theme of "Driving Change and Going the Extra Mile."
We are thrilled to be recognized as the Arkansas "Community Star" by the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) and will continue to drive change and go the extra mile to make a difference in rural Arkansas, shared Mellie Bridewell, ARHP President and Founder.
