As a valued partner of the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health, we invite and encourage you to consider nominating an individual or organization deserving of recognition as a 2019 Community Star! The Community Star Recognition Program has become one of the most popular features for National Rural Health Day and in our continued #PowerofRural movement efforts.

This year, our goal is to feature an outstanding rural health champion from each of our nation's 50 states. Because you work alongside rural health stakeholders, we believe you may have first-hand knowledge of someone making a positive and remarkable difference on behalf of the rural communities they serve.

Shine a light on a Community Star by August 9, 2019!



On November 21, the Community Stars eBook will be released on the official National Rural Health Day website - PowerofRural.org! We will also be promoting the collection of inspiring stories with every State Office of Rural Health, our partners, and with media and social media outlets. Our goal is to shine a light on the outstanding work of those committed to improving the health and well-being of the estimated 57 million people living in rural America!

Please note that while only one nominee’s story per state will be developed, all eligible nominees will receive an honorable mention in the final 2019 eBook.
