National Health Center Week (Aug. 8-14) gives us an opportunity to recognize the significant contributions of our nation’s community health centers, and the role they play in providing high quality primary care to millions of people, in urban and rural neighborhoods across the county. We thank The National Association of Community Health Centers for sponsoring the week’s activities and for their leadership in planning for the expansion of CHCs as the landmark Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act transforms our nation’s delivery system, and applaud the crucial work of our health center colleagues in their communities.
