2023 National Health Center Week
Theme: Community Health Centers: The Roadmap to a Stronger America
August 6 - 12, 2023
National Health Center Week (August 6 – 12) 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.
Community Health Centers serve as the beacon of strength, service, and care in their communities. In moments of pain and loss, they offer support and love. In moments of triumph, they offer hope and a vision for the future. Let’s come together this week to celebrate the roles Community Health Centers have played in both our recent moments of loss and triumph. This National Health Center Week is a virtual road trip across the US, highlighting the achievements and amazing work being done in each state and territory. It’s a week for us to take pride in our states/territories and communities, as well as “visiting” our friends across the map to get to know each other.
