One Voice for Florida. Louder

National Rural Health Day, 11.19.15

National Rural Health Day is an opportunity to Celebrate the Power of Rural by honoring the selfless, community-minded, “can do” spirit of that prevails in rural America.

But it also gives us a chance to bring to light the unique healthcare challenges that rural citizens face – and showcase the efforts of rural healthcare providers, State Offices of Rural Health and other rural stakeholders to address those challenges.

Please consider reaching out to your legislator to let him or her know about the successes and challenges faced by your rural community. 

FRHA has drafted an advocacy letter highlighting the unique needs and statistics of rural Florida. Please take a few minutes to edit and send to your state and U.S. legislator here.
