National Health Center Week
Save the Date
August 4-10, 2019
National Health Center Week (NHCW) is an annual celebration of community health centers nationwide. The goal of NHCW is to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers over the past five decades. Health centers serve 28 million patients across the country, a number that continues to grow along with the demand for high quality, affordable primary care. In addition to their long history as health homes to millions of patients, 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 patients across the spectrum. 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 invite you to celebrate the ways in which health centers are “Rooted in Communities.”
Follow along during NHCW as we highlight the incredible work of community health centers across California! This year’s hashtags are #NHCW19 and #ValueCHCs. Please visit healthcenterweek.org for more information and to find events in your area.
