Nominations are due May 1, 2018 for the annual Minnesota Rural Health Hero Award, the Minnesota Rural Health Team Award, the MHRA Emerging Rural Health Leader Award and the Rural Health Lifetime Achievement Award. The Lifetime Achievement is distinguished from the other awards in length of service and breadth of impact. The Lifetime Achievement Award is meant for individuals who, over the span of their career, have made a lasting or significant contribution to improving rural health. Nominees for all the awards will have made positive or innovative contributions in the areas of rural health policy, education, legislation, patient care, services, or health care systems within their communities or at a state level.
All the awards recognize outstanding contributions to rural health in our state. They will be presented during the 2018 Minnesota Rural Health Conference Awards Breakfast on June 26 in Duluth.
