National Health Center Week (NCHW), August 5-11, 2012  recognizes our nation’s community health centers and the role they play in providing accessible, high quality, cost-effective health care to all people, regardless of ability to pay.

This year’s NHCW theme, “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Powering Healthier Communities,” highlights the many unique ways in which  community, migrant, homeless and public housing health centers  – which together serve more than 20 million people in urban and rural communities across the country – are “powering” and “empowering” their communities.

We are proud to be a NCHW partner organization. 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.
