Honoring Health Center Heroes Day

The incredible value Health Centers bring to their patients and community is because of health center heroes– individuals who are committed to providing high quality care to patients in need. Health Center Heroes are dedicated to the Community Health Center Movement  and deserve to be recognized. Use this day to recognize and honor health center heroes and sheroes including providers, patients, volunteers and staff.
