The Trust recently held the 2016 Innovations in Rural Health Award at an event at Campbell University and took the opportunity to check in on the innovative ideas that won in 2013 and 2014. With the Rural Health Award, the Trust decided to step outside of North Carolina to seek innovative ideas and bring those solutions back to North Carolina’s rural communities.
