Save the Dates for National Health Center Week! August 7-13, 2011

Monday, July 11, 2011

Hi Everyone!

National Health Center Week is less than a month away!  The theme of this year’s National Health Center Week is “Celebrating American’s Health Centers: Serving Locally, Leading Nationally.”  We’re really excited about our schedule of events this year, as we’re working with our member health centers, community partners, and elected officials to not only raise awareness about the value of community health centers, but also using this week as a reason to educate the general public about a broad range of health and health care advocacy issues.

Here’s how our schedule looks so far:
