National Health Center Week was established decades ago to raise awareness of the impact Community Health Centers make on the health and wellness of the local communities they serve. It is also a time to celebrate everything that patients, community members and local partners do to keep them going strong. Check out our list below to see how you can take part as we celebrate our health centers and communities.
