A Redesigned Ruralcenter.org

Introducing the new ruralcenter.org – the online home of the National Rural Health Resource Center, the leading technical assistance and knowledge center focused on rural health.

Following a more than six-month-long design and development process, they are officially launching the new site. Once you visit the revamped ruralcenter.org and begin exploring, you’ll find a layout and design that’s fresh, modern, and inviting, a site that provides an improved user experience for visitors.

You Spoke. They Listened.

Even before they officially surveyed website users and key stakeholders this past year, they heard your comments. “It’s too text heavy.” “Sometimes it’s difficult to find the things I’m looking for.” Those comments have played a vital role in the redesign process. Thank you for your willingness to speak up and share your feedback.

New Look. Same High-Quality Resources.

The “look” of the site has certainly changed: There’s less text. More images and videos. More color. A more streamlined navigation. But the resources and events that you’ve come to expect — reporting templates, toolkits, webinars, podcasts, and so much more — are all still here. They’re just easier to find, download, and use.

You’ll also Notice

In addition to a website redesign, The Center’s brand has been refreshed. The new look features abstract icons that depict a landscape with a crossroads in the foreground and a rising sun in the horizon. The new graphical elements in the logo help to communicate much of what The Center is about: The pathways crossing signify togetherness and collaboration; the sun conveys positivity and possibilities.
