One of our favorite is getting to meet health professionals in all stages of training and practice who know (or are learning) about who 3RNet is and what we do. We had the chance to reconnect with one such professional, Ifedolapo Sulyman Olanrewaju. Ifedolapo, or “Dolapo” had already heard of 3RNet, but stopped by our booth anyway. Not only did he get some more great information that will help him as he searches for a job, he is the lucky recipient of the $250 gift card we gave away for this event!
November 20 marks an important event for those of us in the ‘rural health world’ – National Rural Health Day.

Dr. Mark Deutchman, professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, is a great role model for anyone interested in practicing medicine in a rural area. We spent a few minutes with him and asked him some questions about why he is so passionate about rural health care.
