August 11-17, 2013
National health center week (NHCW) is dedicated to celebrating the services and contributions of Community, Migrant, Homeless and Public Housing Health Centers and the role they play in providing accessible, high quality, cost-effective health care to all people across the Unites States, regardless of ability to pay. This year’s NHCW theme is “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Transforming Health Care in Our Local Communities.” It emphasizes the health center mission – to provide a health care home to all Americans in need – as well as the importance of continuous preventive and primary care to help reduce health risk and lower the overall potential cost of health care.
RCHN Community Health Foundation is proud to be a NCHW partner. We thank The National Association of Community Health Centers for their leadership and sponsorship of the week’s activities and applaud the crucial work of our health center colleagues, working in their communities across the country, to provide health care access for all.
Details on NHCW activities and events and a full range of resources and tools are available on the NHCW website.
