We wrapped up the 2018 National Health Center Week on August 18 with our Back to School Bash. It was a busy week filled with lots of fun recognizing our patients and honoring our staff “superheroes.” Enjoy a few pictures from the week! For more pictures follow us on Facebook. Join us next year for the National Health Center Week celebration, August 4-10, 2019!
About National Health Center Week
National Health Center Week is an annual celebration with the goal of raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers over the past five decades.
Health centers serve 27 million patients a number that continues to grow along with the demand for affordable primary care. In addition to their long history as health care homes to millions, health centers produce innovative solutions to the most pressing health care issues in their communities and reach beyond the walls of conventional medicine to address the social determinants of health affecting special patient populations. Each year we celebrate the work and services health centers provide to special populations within their community on designated days during the week.
This year, the National Association of Community Health Centers and the Health Center Advocacy Network invites you to celebrate the incredible health care heroes– individuals who live and breathe the health center mission and exceed the call of duty to support health centers in providing quality health care for patients in the community.
