 OSU Rural Health to host National Rural Health Day lunch and open house

OSU-CHS faculty, staff and students are invited to attend the OSU Center for Rural Health open house and free barbeque lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 17, at the Phoenix Building. 

The event celebrates the inaugural National Rural Health Day, which is intended to showcase Rural America, increase awareness of the unique healthcare issues facing rural communities and highlight the efforts of State Offices of Rural Health and others to address those issues.  The OSU Telemedicine bus and the new OSU Mobile Cardiology unit will be on-site and tours will be available.

The mission of the OSU Center for Rural Health is to support OSU-CHS and its College of Osteopathic Medicine by seeking to improve healthcare in rural Oklahoma through student education, residency training, research, program applications, advocacy and alliances with others who share its goals.

The Center is responsible for the rural education portion of OSU's College of Osteopathic Medicine, overseeing rural rotations of third and fourth year medical students. It also funds programs aimed at providing Oklahoma’s rural practitioners, hospitals and clinics the support necessary to ensure access to quality healthcare for our state’s rural residents. 

For more lunch and open house information, call (918) 584-4310.
