ERMC helps celebrate third-annual National Rural Health Day
The third-annual National Rural Health Day is set to take place November 21, 2013. National Rural Health Day is an initiative of the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) and is an event to highlight rural communities as wonderful places to live and work, increase awareness of rural health-related issues, and promote the efforts of NOSORH and State Offices of Rural Health.
In Eaton Rapids, Eaton Rapids Medical Center's Family Practice & Redicare will be providing a free goodie bag to their patients to help celebrate National Rural Health Day.
Approximately 62 million people - one in five Americans - live in rural areas.
"National Rural Health Day is important because it provides an opportunity for us to recognize and acknowledge the rural health care services provided to those residents who call rural Michigan home," says Tim Johnson, President and CEO of Eaton Rapids Medical Center. "We appreciate the role that rural health care providers play in bringing local access to an underserved patient population."
There are 3,617 primary care Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) in rural and frontier areas of all U.S. states and territories compared to 2,151 in metropolitan areas. According to the NOSORH website, National Rural Health Day is one of NOSORH's many efforts to fulfill its mission of promoting the capacity of state offices of rural health to improve health care in rural American through leadership development, advocacy, education and partnerships.
