What better way to celebrate #PowerOfRural than through this unique gathering of multi-sector experts sharing an enlightening and lively conversation focused on ways to work together to improve health for the nearly 61 million people living in America's rural places? Stay tuned for more details and collaborator introductions.

The story of rural health in America often focuses on barriers to access, provider shortages, and poor outcomes for communities where persistent poverty, economic disparity, and inequity are prevalent. These issues are worthy of covering and sharing to influence meaningful change; however, the positive stories are just as powerful yet often untold.  

This unique web event is for communications and public relations professionals, journalists, bloggers, editors, and others interested in communicating and reporting on rural health and all it entails. A panel of industry leaders will share their perspectives on positive rural health storytelling, followed by a facilitated discussion focused on your interests and challenges in communicating about rural health.
