Together we can find the answers to strengthen our communities.

Although there are differences between rural and urban communities, many of our problems are the same. We are all interconnected as we are solving these critical issues in America. As Janet reflects on our Strengthening Rural America event, she explains, “the quality of life in our country is dependent on our ability to connect with each other and strengthen America.” Our communities are relying on professionals in healthcare and education to create places where we care and love each other – where no one problem is too big to solve.

This episode addresses questions, such as:

  • Why is strengthening rural America so important for all Americans?
  • What does it mean to commit to excellence?
  • How do we help make our communities a better place to live, learn, and work?
