August 9-15 is National Health Care Center Week and Promise Community Health Center is excited to celebrate!
This year the theme for NHCW is LIGHTING THE WAY FOR HEALTHIER COMMUNITIES TODAY AND IN THE FUTURE!
National Health Center Week is an annual celebration with the goal of raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers over the past five decades.
Community Health Centers serve as the beacon of strength, service, and care in their communities. In moments of pain and loss, they offer support and love. In moments of triumph, they offer hope and a vision for the future. Let’s come together this week to celebrate the roles Community Health Centers have played in both our recent moments of loss and triumph. This National Health Center Week honors those front line providers, staff, and beloved patients who lost their lives during the (ongoing) COVID-19 pandemic. From the very beginning of the crisis, Community Health Centers began finding innovative ways to provide preventative and primary care to their patients. During this week of remembrance, light a candle for those community health leaders, patients that we lost. As we commemorate those lives and celebrate the future of Community Health, let’s shine a light across the country that will embody the future of primary health care aces for underserved populations. Shine a light on your Community Health Center and share the value that it brings to everyone who it touches.
This week Promise Community Health Center will be celebrating and educating (shining a light on) our communities about our Health Center’s services and staff! We can’t wait to share with you! Some of the fun activities and plans for this week are:
• Flashlights for patients as a way to remind them we are shining the light for them!
• Coloring Contest for the kiddos and the prizes are some fun flashlights!
• Staff Appreciation Meal
• Board Appreciation Ad
Head into Promise Community Health Center this week to help us light the way for our communities today and in the future!
