The Michigan Center for Rural Health NRHD Scavenger Hunt

For our Annual Critical Access Hospital Conference we will be having an NRHD themed scavenger hunt! Each Exhibitor for our conference will be given a special QR code. Participants will use a QR scanner to access a fun Rural Michigan Fact. Within that fact is a bolded/underlined word that corresponds to a fill-in-the-blank, key NRHD phrase. Once the phrase has been completed, participants will turn them in to be eligible for a prize drawing at the end of the conference!

Spectrum Enterprise is Educating Rural Providers About the Importance of Fiber Connectivity

We plan to promote #PowerofRural in organic social the week of Nov. 4 leading up to Nov. 21 National Rural Health Day. Our content will educate rural providers about the importance of fiber connectivity and the positive impact it can have on rural patients. For rural providers/stakeholders who are already aware of the Rural Health Care Funding Program and the Telecommunications Program, we’ll empower them to obtain funding. And for those who are not aware of the program, we’ll educate them about the funding program and also empower them to get connected and obtain funding to help off-set some of their costs. We also plan to promote #PowerofRural via online display ads and emails to all of our rural healthcare clients. In addition, will work with our sellers to ask their rural healthcare clients to send them photos and an email of what the power of rural means to them. So that our social team can include it in a blog post.
