HealthLinc will celebrate National Health Center Week with a Health Fair and party at each of the HealthLinc clinics this summer. “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Innovators in Community Health,” will include fun activities for kids and families while at the same time promoting well-child check-ups, school physicals, and immunizations. Each child that attends will receive a backpack with health and school supplies (while supplies last) to help get the school year started off right.

These events highlight the important role that health centers have in providing access to affordable, high-quality, cost-effective health care to the medically vulnerable and underserved in our communities.
