WCHC is hosting a variety of community events in honor of National Health Center Week (NHCW) on August 13 – 18, 2018. These events are part of a national campaign during the week to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers and the dedicated staff who bring health care to the medically underserved. We hope you’ll join us for the following:
Starting Monday, August 13 through Saturday August 18, WCHC will host a “Coloring Contest” at all sites. Coloring pages will be available for anyone up to age 13 to enter to win a prize. Coloring pages will be displayed in the health centers during the month of August in recognition of Health Center Week.
