National Health Center Week

National Health Center Week
Caregiving often takes a community, whether that means a group of health care professionals, family members, friends or a combination. Health centers in local communities can be a vital part of well-being too.

National Health Center Week is Aug. 13-19, 2017. This year's theme is, "Celebrating America's Health Centers: The Key to Healthier Communities." According to the National Association of Community Health Centers, one in every 15 people in the United States depends on health center services. Take a look here for the list of how each day of that week will focus on a different aspect of community health.
