National Health Center Week (NHCW) is an annual celebration (in August) with the goal of raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers.

The goals of National Health Center Week are twofold: to enhance the visibility and profile of Community, Migrant, and Homeless, and Public Housing Centers; and to generate community pride and build support for the health centers program. National Health Center Week provides an ideal occasion to celebrate the long record of success and delivery of high quality, cost effective, and accessible care across the nation. It is a great opportunity for health centers to speak out telling the story of their community-based model of care and creating public awareness of what they do and how they do it. National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC)

The Community Health Association Inland Southern Region (CHAISR) celebrates National Health Center Week each year by visiting our member health centers.
