Happy National Rural Health Day! To help us celebrate, we’re having a conversation with Kristine Sande.
“It’s really great to focus on what makes rural communities great!”
Kristine Sande is an Associate Director at the University of North Dakota Center for Rural Health. She also directs the Rural Health Information Hub, formerly known as the Rural Assistance Center, which serves as a national information portal for rural health.
“The people who provide healthcare within those rural communities are so important and it is great to have a day to celebrate that.”
Prior to the launch of RHI Hub in 2002, she served as the Project Coordinator of the North Dakota Flex Program and worked at two different rural electric cooperatives.
Kristine was raised on a family farm 20 miles outside of a North Dakota town of 1,200 people. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of North Dakota.
