Who Do You See When You Think of Rural?
The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) is proud to help better showcase the diversity and power of rural communities.
Older. Sicker. Poorer. White. Less educated. This has long been how rural communities are viewed and stereotyped. Reality is much different — and NRHA hopes to change this narrative.
Rural America is incredibly diverse, innovative, and constantly evolving in culture and community. That’s why NRHA is proud to announce our Faces of Rural Campaign to better showcase the diversity and power of rural communities.
This campaign can be used as an educational tool to create a more accurate picture of rural communities and the dialogue used to discuss and celebrate them.
NRHA was only able to feature a few profiles in the video and invites you to feel free to post some rural faces and the stories behind them on social media with #FacesofRural.
This campaign is the result of a partnership with Legato Healthcare Marketing and showcases communities and programs that exemplify the heart of rural America.
As an organization made up of diverse and passionate membership and staff, NRHA is proud to lead the way in championing this effort.
