 Rural Health Day-Thursday, November 19, 2020

In 2010, the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health created National Rural Health Day as a way to applaud
 the ongoing efforts, contributions, and collaborations occurring [D1] in rural communities to address the unique challenges
in accessing and delivering health care [D2] services.

The Northern Broome CARES program is part of the Rural Health Network of South Central NY. Northern Broome CARES
serves individuals age 60 and above in the Lisle, Triangle, and Whitney Point area. The program invites YOU to celebrate with us!
You can celebrate by getting outdoors and enjoying the beauty of our rural area! Take a walk at Dorchester Park, drive to the
 "Iook-out" and enjoy the view, or walk in your own neighborhood or yard! Take a moment and write about why you enjoy
 living in a rural area. Send your thoughts to us at Northern Broome CARES, 12 Strongs Place, Whitney Point, NY 13862.
 With your permission, we would love to share your thoughts through the Rural Health Network newsletter
. You may also
send them via email to
