Community Health Centers – A Good Prescription for Our Nation’s Health

Community Health Centers – A Good Prescription for Our Nation’s Health

Back to all News

August 12-18 is National Health Center Week, an annual celebration with the goal of raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers over the past five decades.

Dr. George Smith, Community Health Northwest Florida’s Chief Medical Officer, states “The theme of this year’s National Health Center Week is “Celebrating Health Centers: Home of America’s Health Care Heroes,” but none of us who work at health centers consider ourselves heroes. Rather, we are people of the community who believe that affordable health care should always be within reach for everyone who needs it.’
