I forgot to tell you all ...

Today is the FIRST EVER National Rural Health Day! RPHSA, our student council, celebrated by inviting an active member of the Brazos Valley Community Action Agency, which administers the Community Health Clinic program in the local area.

Rural residents do indeed have special and specific needs. They can't always be grouped together as a whole (Alaska "rural" is vastly different from Texas "rural," for instance), but we need to recognize the unique attributes of these groups.

Rural public health essentially rocks. So get on board.

And Celebrate the Power of Rural!!!


  1. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  2. Congratulations to all member of Brazos Valley Community, your students have done a remarkable job in rural areas. We should try to arrange health and fitness related workshops and seminars in rural areas to increase awareness.
