“Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Innovators in Community Health” is the theme for National Health Center Week 2016 to underscore how Community Health Centers provide access to affordable, high quality, cost effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people throughout the United States. They are strong partnerships of people, governments and communities who work together to meet the unique and diverse health conditions of the community. Health centers are run from the bottom up, by a patient-majority governing board who guides how limited resources can be effectively directed to meet the health care needs of the community.
Please join us to celebrate National Health Center Week and help us honor these community health heroes!
