National Rural Health Day Community Stars
The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) Community Stars program honors individuals and organizations working in and serving rural communities and supporting rural health collaboration, communication, education, or innovation. Community Stars are featured in an electronic publication that is released on National Rural Health Day each year.
Past Community Stars have included rural health physicians, nurses, other healthcare providers, hospital administrators, board members, volunteers, health clinic personnel, first responders, and others promoting health and wellness through a civic or community organization.
This year's goal is to feature one Community Star from each of the 50 states.
Eligible recipients are individuals and organizations currently working and serving rural communities.
Any person with a close connection to the nominee and is familiar with his/her rural health work is eligible to submit a nomination.
These awards are honorary. Community Stars are featured in an electronic publication that is released on National Rural Health Day each year. NOSORH actively shares news about Community Stars with media and social media outlets.
To begin, submit the nomination form linked from the program website.
