Sign Up for NOSORH’S Series of Free Webinars to Celebrate National Rural Health Week

November 12th through the 16th is National Rural Health Week, and at CRHC, we will be celebrating the power of rural all week. We recognize that while facing unique healthcare needs, rural areas are full of innovation and are wonderful places to live and work. We also know that these communities are fueled by the creative energy of ordinary citizens who are always willing to step forward and take risks in order to provide a wealth of products and resources for the rest of the country. We thank you for all you do to serve your communities.

As part of the week long celebration, the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health (NOSORH) is hosting a series of free webinars highlighting the good work being done to address rural health concerns.
