National Health Center Week is an annual celebration led by the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers over the past five decades.
From the very beginning of the pandemic crisis, Community Health Centers began finding innovative ways to provide preventative and primary care to their patients. They provide low-cost prenatal care, general primary care, COVID-19 screening and testing, and referrals to specialized care, including mental health, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS.
This year’s theme, “The Chemistry for Strong Communities,” will honor front-line providers, staff, and patients who have lost their lives during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
During the observance week, commemorate their lives and celebrate the future of community health by participating in the following dedicated focus days:
