Minnesota Rural Health Awards honor individuals and teams for outstanding contributions to rural health in Minnesota. Awards fall under the categories:

Nominees may have contributed to rural health in any capacity: through a volunteer or paid position, as a healthcare provider or non-provider, in policy or through practice. The Lifetime Achievement Award is intended to recognize individuals who, over the span of their career, have made significant, lasting contributions to improving rural health in Minnesota.

Areas of impact could include but are not limited to:

  • Rural health policy
  • Legislation
  • Education
  • Patient care
  • Healthcare systems

Awards will be announced on National Rural Health Day, which is November 16, 2023.
