In recognition of National Health Center Week, planned for August 13 – 19, 2017, the Jessie Trice Community Health Center has kicked off its second annual #iChooseHealth4 campaign. National Health Center Week provides an opportunity for Health Centers to showcase the incredible services they provide to their communities, while advocating for the resources necessary to expand their programming. This year’s theme is Celebrating America’s Health Centers: The Key to Healthier Communities.
“The key to a healthier community starts with each of us,” says Annie Neasman, President & CEO of JTCHC. “Through the iChooseHealth4 campaign, we continue to remind residents about the importance of choosing health – whether it’s for yourself, your friends and family or your community.”
The #iChooseHealth4 campaign invites participants to write down what they choose health for then share a photo of their message on social media using the hashtags #iChooseHealth4, #NHCW17 and #ValueCHCs. In addition to the campaign, JTCHC will also host a series of events and activities at its centers throughout the week.
National Health Center Week has been celebrated for more than 30 years to recognize the services and contributions of Community, Migrant, Homeless and Public Housing Health Centers. While there are countless reasons to celebrate America’s Health Centers, among the most important and unique is their long success in providing access to affordable, high quality, cost effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people throughout the United States.
