Staff Appreciation

Tools & Resources

Staff appreciation is an important part of any workplace. In public health, the workforce often dedicates their careers to behind-the-scenes work, making appreciation more challenging. In spreading awareness about the public health workforce and their dedication, the RVPHTC is proud to share these tools, resources, and engagement opportunities in support of workforce appreciation.

Take a look below, and be sure to connect with us on social media to engage in these appreciation events throughout the year.

National Rural Health Day

One-in-five (57 million) Americans live in rural communities which have unique healthcare needs. National Rural Health Day is an opportunity to celebrate and show appreciation to the efforts of our rural healthcare providers. The Power of Rural Promotional Toolkit provides postcards, idea guides, flyers, social media graphics, and much more to help individuals and organizations celebrate our rural health workers.
