Health Center Week

National Health Center Week is an annual observance in the United States that highlights the mission and accomplishments of community health centers (CHCs). CHCs are nonprofit, community-based organizations that provide comprehensive, affordable, and high-quality primary healthcare services to underserved populations, including low-income individuals, uninsured or underinsured individuals, and medically vulnerable communities.

National Health Center Week is typically celebrated during the second week of August. It serves as an opportunity to raise awareness about the vital role of health centers in promoting accessible healthcare and improving the overall health and well-being of the communities they serve. The weeklong event aims to recognize the contributions of health centers and their dedicated staff, engage in community outreach and education, and advocate for continued support for these essential healthcare providers.
