Sunday, August 9th. Today is the start of National Health Center Week, an occasion with greatly elevated importance this year.

The theme of the observation is Community Health Centers: The Chemistry for Strong Communities. Started some 30 years ago, the effort to spotlight the distinctiveness and importance of localized health centers across our varied communities is noted by Congressional resolutions and Presidential proclamations.

These centers provide a range of specialties in health care to stressed populations with limited access to such services.

Nationwide, there are over 46,000 outpatient care centers employing 1.1 million doctors, nurses and staff. Nearly 18,000 of these establishments are non-profit facilities.
