National Rural Health Community Star: Jodi Cregger
November 13, 2017
On the third Thursday of November every year, the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health leads National Rural Health Day, an annual day of recognition for those who serve the vital health needs of over 60 million people residing in America’s rural communities, estimated to be 1 in 5 Americans. NOSORH is the member organization serving all 50 State Offices of Rural Health (SORH) with Kansas headquartered in Wichita.
SORHs provide support to rural hospitals, clinics, and first responders in several ways including technical assistance, funding that supports workforce development, population health management, quality improvement initiatives, and more.
In 2015, NOSORH asked SORHs to nominate hospital and emergency first responder teams, community health, and volunteer service heroes on the front lines of rural health who were making a positive impact on rural lives. Soon after the stories started coming, the book of National Rural Health Day Community Stars was published.
Jodi Cregger will appear in the 2017 edition that will be available on the PowerofRural website, the official hub for National Rural Health Day and the Power of Rural movement beginning November 16, 2017.
LifeTeam is proud to recognize Jodi for her dedication to LifeTeam’s life-saving mission and also the impact she has made in the rural communities she serves.
“Jodi has a passion for educating others, especially on the topic of pediatrics,” said LifeTeam Program Director, Frank Williams. “The best of the best in clinical education and care, Jodi exemplifies what it means to be a rural Community Star and we are so proud she is part of our team.”
