The Arkansas State Office of Rural Health (SORH) is now accepting nominations for the 2019 Community Star. Nominate a 2019 Community Star, today!

Nominate them as a 2019 Community Star!

At the Arkansas SORH, we are dedicated to bringing attention to the outstanding contributions of those who are working to improve health in rural America through leadership development, advocacy, education, and collaborative partnerships. We hope you will help us in our search for this year’s outstanding Community Stars in connection to the Power of Rural movement and National Rural Health Day (November 21, 2019).

As in year’s past, we’re asking our friends and partners to identify those who are making a positive health impact in their rural community, and to nominate them for consideration to be included in the 2019 Community Stars ebook, a publication released annually on National Rural Health Day!

When you click the link below, you’ll be directed to a secure online nomination form located on the website. If you know of an individual or organization that we should shine a light on and celebrate this National Rural Health Day, please take just a few moments to nominate them by August 9, 2019.

Finally, please share this information with your contacts, asking them to nominate someone they know who is making a difference in rural health!
