National Health Center Week

Did you know that August 10 - 17 is National Health Center Week?  This is is a special time to celebrate Health Center success and the Ohio Association of Community Health Centers is doing just that through events all week and their new Health Center Hero Award program!  Free health fairs, open houses and events involving public officials and community leaders are going on throughout the state.  The Health Center Hero Award program gives Community Health Centers the opportunity to nominate staff members and colleagues for the award.  The winners are to be announced online and through local media on Monday, August 11th.  Also this week, a national report is being released that shows that there are not enough doctors and nurses in the places that need them most.  Look for National Health Center Week information in your local news!  Email or comment and let us know what you see.
