National Health Centers Week
Join us for National Health Centers Week 2017. August 6th thru 12th. Every year during the second week of August we celebrate National Health Center Week by recognizing the work that our Community, Public Housing, Migrant, and Homeless Health Centers have provided. While there are countless reasons to celebrate America's health centers, among the most important and unique is our long success in providing access to affordable, high quality, cost effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people.
This year our theme is: "Celebrating America's Health Centers: Innovators in Community Health", to learn more visit http://www.saveourchcs.org/.
