Tucson, Arizona, November 3, 2023 – Arizona Center for Rural Health – Holly Figueroa, BCBSAZ Health Choice & Arizona Rural Health Association, has been named Arizona’s 2023 “Community Star” by the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH).

On the third Thursday of November, NOSORH leads National Rural Health Day (NRHD), an annual celebration that shines a light on those who serve the vital health needs of the nearly 61 million people living in rural America. Holly Figueroa will be featured prominently on the official NRHD website, PowerOfRural.org, on November 16, 2023, alongside other Community Stars from across the nation. This platform will showcase each Star’s remarkable dedication and contributions to rural healthcare.

Arizona Center for Rural Health is proud to join NOSORH in honoring Holly Figueroa as Arizona's Community Star. Ms. Figueroa has shown steadfast commitment to improving health systems in her community and throughout Arizona. We are honored to work with her and congratulate her on this well-earned recognition.              

In 2015, the Community Star Recognition Program was established in conjunction with NRHD to tell the stories of the people and organizations who make a difference in rural communities. Since then, over 300 inspiring rural stars have been honored nationwide on NRHD.
