National Health Center Week
August 12-18, 2018

Tuesday, 8/14 – Public Housing Health Center Day

Public Housing Health Center Day

Part of the Health Center Model is to tailor programming and care for the specific needs of the community where they are located.  On this day, we recognize and celebrate the services and contributions of our health centers located in or immediately accessible to public housing. These health centers provide access to affordable, high-quality, and cost-effective health care and work collaboratively with their local housing authorities and other key stakeholders to meet the unique and varied needs of residents of public housing.

Consider hosting one of the following events in recognition of Public Housing Health Center Day this year:

  • Host a Health Fair at the Public Housing Complex in Your Community – whether your health center is an official Public Housing Health Center grantee or simply treats a high rate of patients who live in public housing; consider hosting a health fair onsite at the public housing complex (or nearby) in celebration of the work health centers do each day to care for this special population.
  • Work with Your Local Housing Authority to Co-Author a Letter to the Editoruse NACHC’s media toolkit.
