Celebrate Community Health Center Week!

Health & Medicine Policy Research Group (HMPRG)
August 8, 2012

National Community Health Center Week is this week, August 5-11th. Community Health Centers provide high-quality, affordable primary and preventive health care.

The Affordable Care Act of 2010 strengthened Community Health Centers across the country by supporting on-going operations and expansion efforts. Serving over 20 million individuals in every state across the country, Community Health Centers are a critical component of the health care safety net.
