About the Seminar
The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health sets aside the third Thursday of every November to observe National Rural Health Day. The NIH Rural Health Special Interest Group (RH SIG) hosts the Rural Health Seminar as their main activity to stimulate multidisciplinary discussions to advance rural health research.

The NIH RH SIG works to raise awareness of rural health issues and improve biomedical, behavioral/social science, intervention and implementation research aimed at improving disease prevention, self-management, and care delivery across the care continuum. Our goal is to advance our understanding of rural health disparities and stimulate research to identify multi-level, evidence-based solutions to improve rural health outcomes. We connect translational, clinical, and community-based researchers from diverse disciplines throughout the NIH, to research communities, and decision makers. Among researchers, we also provide opportunities for professional development, networking, and community engagement.
