Each year, the Wyoming Office of Rural Health (ORH) celebrates National Rural Health Day to bring much needed attention to the incredible efforts rural health providers and other rural stakeholders take in addressing the unique needs of rural and frontier communities in Wyoming. These small towns, ranching communities, and frontier areas are places where neighbors know each other, listen to each other, respect each other, and work together. National Rural Health Day is an opportunity to “Celebrate the Power of Rural.” This year’s National Rural Health Day will be celebrated on November 16th, 2023.
