Oregon Rural Health Hero of the Year Award

2016 Oregon Rural Health Hero of the Year

Is there a Healthcare Hero in your Rural Community?

The Oregon Office of Rural Health annually seeks nominations for the Oregon Rural Health Hero of the Year Award. The award honors an outstanding person, program or organization that has improved the quality and availability of health care in rural communities.

“There are many hard working, dedicated people out there who have made a major impact on health care in rural Oregon,” says Scott Ekblad, Director of the Oregon Office of Rural Health. “Think about nominating someone whose actions have had a notable, positive impact on the health of the community, or a successful program that other communities might want to duplicate. How about a teacher or coach with a unique approach to educating students on health care risk prevention, or a health care provider, clinic or health department that has demonstrated a unique devotion to the populations they serve?”

2017 guidelines and nomination forms will be live in February, 2017.
