Rural Week 2009

Rural Week video is available for viewing at

The week was awesome and took a lot of people to successfully pull it off. There were well over 100 preceptors from over 42 communities, each of which had numerous people making schedules and arranging for extra curricular activities.

Our hat goes off to all for generously offering their time & skills, without these dedicated individuals the Rural Week program would not exist.

The Evaluation Summary will be available soon.
