Happy National Health Center Week - And what to do if you forgot but still want to participate!

Happy National Health Center Week (NHCW)! This year's theme really is a great one: Celebrating Health Centers: Home of America's Health Care Heroes

The majority of our blog subscribers work at or with health centers so, if you're reading this blog, chances are, YOU are a healthcare hero - And we at FQHC Germane would like to say THANK YOU for all that you do! 

By the way, if you've been buried under work and forgot about National Health Center Week or didn't have time to plan an event, it's not too late to participate! The NCHW website has a handy event locator map tool to help you find events near you. The website is full of helpful resources, including social media tools like sample posts and graphics to share, health center fact sheets, and more, so be sure to check it out.

Also, don't forget to share your photos and events on social media (use the tags #NHCW18 and #CHCSuperPower) and enter the 2018 NHCW photo and video contest.

Have fun while spreading awareness of the importance of the health center movement and mission - It's a win/win!
