Stand Up for 77,000 Hard Working Nebraskans

On Tuesday, January 19, 2016, concerned citizens and like-minded organizations, including the Center for Rural Affairs, were at the Nebraska State Capitol. They gathered to support the Transitional Health Care bill, which will ensure all Nebraskans are able to get the health coverage they need.

Over 77,000 hard-working Nebraskans don’t have access to affordable health insurance. During the upcoming session, the legislature will once again have the opportunity and responsibility to ensure all Nebraskans have access to the care they need!

Give Thanks for Rural Health

Thursday, November 19th is National Rural Health Day. On the Thursday before Thanksgiving each year, rural Americans give thanks for our health and the doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other providers that help keep us that way. In truth, most rural and small town Americans are thankful for our health, healthcare providers and the hospitals, clinics and other businesses where they work most other days as well.
