Christensen named “Rural Health Hero”

Raymond Christensen, M.D.

Raymond Christensen, M.D., assistant dean for rural health at the University of Minnesota Medical School-Duluth Campus, was recently named Minnesota’s “rural health hero” at the Minnesota rural health Conference in Duluth for advocating on behalf of today’s health-care consumers and educating tomorrow’s rural health providers. He received the award shortly after being installed as Grand Master of the Masons of Minnesota—a 154-year-old fraternal organization with more than 16,000 members.

Among other accomplishments, Christensen helped develop the trauma system in northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin, the Arrowhead EMS Association, the Northern Lakes Health Care Consortium, the Minnesota Center for Rural Health, the Minnesota Office of Rural Health and Primary Care, and the Rural Health Resource Center.
