Price made a stop at the Community Health Center during National Health Center Week 2008 (August 10-16) to learn more about a child immunization drive and tour the site. The event was backed by Covidien, a leading global healthcare products company that employs over 450 people in the Raleigh area. Price also received the “Superhero” award from the National Association of Community Health Centers for his commitment to improving access to healthcare.  “Wake Health Services cares for more than 25,000 patients a year at seven sites,” said Chief Executive Officer Penny Washington. “We were honored to have Representative Price visit and see how health centers and local companies like Covidien come together to meet a vital need in the health of our communities.”
