Northern Dental Access Center in Bemidji recently received the Outstanding Rural Health Organization award from the National Rural Health Association as part of the 2022 Rural Health Awards.

NRHA’s Rural Health Awards are given each year to individuals and organizations in the field of rural health who have dedicated their time and talents to improving the health and well-being of others, a release said.

Northern Dental Access Center is a nonprofit community clinic that provides dental care to low-income people across dozens of counties in rural northwest Minnesota, including enrollees of three tribal nations in the region, the release said.

“We’re extremely proud of this year’s winners, particularly because of the extra challenges rural health care providers have faced since the COVID-19 pandemic began,” NRHA CEO Alan Morgan said in the release. “They have each made tremendous strides to advance rural health care, and we’re confident they will continue to help improve the lives of rural Americans."
