Community Health Centers: Lighting the Way for Healthier Communities Today and in the Future
August 9-15, 2020
National Health Center Week (NHCW) celebrated in August each year, highlights the significant contributions of our nation’s community health centers, and the dynamic role they play in providing affordable, high-quality, cost-effective health care services.
This year’s theme “Community Health Centers: Lighting the Way for Healthier Communities Today and in the Future” honors front line providers, staff, and beloved patients who lost their lives during the (ongoing) COVID-19 pandemic. From the very beginning of the crisis, Community Health Centers began finding innovative ways to provide preventative and primary care to their patients. During this week of remembrance, light a candle for those community health leaders, patients that we lost. As we commemorate those lives and celebrate the future of Community Health, let’s shine a light across the country that will embody the future of primary health care aces for underserved populations.
RCHN Community Health Foundation is proud to once again be a NHCW partner organization. We thank the National Association of Community Health Centers for their leadership and sponsorship and applaud the work of our community health center colleagues for their dedicated service to all members of the community, regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay.
