It's 2020 National Health Center Week!
This week, August 9-15, 2020, is National Health Center Week, and Davis & Hodgdon invites you to join in celebrating the work and significant impact of these community based, patient-centered organizations.
This year, our nation’s Community Health Center employees are on the front lines of COVID-19. Since the pandemic struck, Community Health Centers in rural and urban areas across the nation have massively pivoted their operations to fight the virus and protect the communities they serve. They expanded tele-health and launched drive-through and curbside testing sites, while continuously providing critical primary and urgent care to the communities they serve.
The 2020 National Health Center Week theme is “Community Health Centers: Lighting the Way for Healthier Communities Today and in the Future.”
“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. This National Health Center Week honors those front-line providers, staff, and beloved patients who lost their lives during the (ongoing) COVID-19 pandemic. During this week of remembrance, light a candle for those community health leaders, and 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 access for under served populations. Shine a light on your Community Health Center and share the value that it brings to everyone who it touches.”
