Community Stars

Those who dedicate their life’s work to rural health are extraordinary people whose contributions are deserving of recognition.  To honor our nation’s rural health leaders the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) is proud to present “Community Stars,” a collection of touching and impactful stories that embody the true Power of Rural.

Community Stars is an electronic publication that is released on National Rural Health Day each year.  Those featured in the book were nominated by a member of their State Office of Rural Health (SORH), a community member, or peer.  Each Community Star profile is a shining example of their generosity, service, and dedication to the people who call rural America home. We thank all those who nominated a Community Star and we’re eager to have you meet them as we celebrate National Rural Health Day and the Power of Rural!

We are pleased to announce the 2017 Community Stars! Read their stories by clicking the button below.
