Celebrating the Health Center Legacy during National Health Center Week

National Health Center Week (NHCW) has arrived, and with the 50th anniversary of America’s health centers this year, there is even more to celebrate. A pilot project launched 50 years ago has evolved into the largest and most successful primary healthcare system in the US. Health centers have proven to be invaluable to the health and well-being of our communities, providing greater access to quality and affordable care, reducing costs, creating jobs, and stimulating the local economy. This is certainly something to be proud of. Capital Link joins the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) in celebrating the people and achievements of the health center movement.

Below is a list of NACHC resources showcasing the health center legacy:

• America's Health Centers: An Enduring Legacy, Value for Today and Tomorrow (video)
• Health Centers, Paving the Road to Good Health (infographic)
• NHCW celebrations across the nation (searchable list)
• 50th anniversary updates and conversations on social media (#CHC50)

The celebration continues into next week with NACHC’s annual CHI & EXPO. We hope to see you at our presentations and in the Exhibit Hall at booth #308.

Capital Link offers a variety of free resources that health centers and PCAs may find helpful, including publications, metrics and analytics for the industry, and webinars.

Happy National Health Center Week!
