National Health Center Week

National Health Center Week is an annual celebration to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers. This year’s theme—Celebrating Health Centers: Home of America’s Health Care Heroes—places the focus on highlighting the contributions of Mississippi’s incredible health care heroes, individuals who live and breathe the health center mission and exceed the call of duty to support health centers in providing quality health care for patients in the community.

We have included a list of some of the events health centers are hosting throughout the week. More events are added each week, so be sure to check this page periodically for the most up-to-date information.
