National Health Center Week (NHCW) is fast approaching! But what is this week, what does it entail and why should you care?
NHCW is a week dedicated to celebrating and bringing awareness to America’s community health centers. This year the event runs from August 12 – August 18. Each year, the second week of August is dedicated to recognizing the service and contributions of Community, Migrant, Homeless and Public Housing Health Centers in providing access to affordable, high-quality, cost-effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people in the U.S. (National Health Center Week).
