National Health Center Week is a great time to spread the word about your health center and the good work it is doing for your community. In planning events for the week, focus on activities that will put the public spotlight on your health center. Engage all sectors of your community to participate by asking businesses to lend their support by contributing resources to events and recruiting volunteers from senior citizens or neighborhood groups to assist in event planning and/or to distribute information.
Health Fairs, Screenings and Open House events comprise the core of activities for National Health Center Week. Health Centers are encouraged to invite participation from public officials at all levels of government by hosting clinic tours, receptions, award presentations, and press conferences and using these public events to leverage media attention and to generate support for their health centers and programs.
