New Book Traces the Health Center Roots

Bonnie Lefkowitz

When has health care in America gone right? Try going back over forty years when a convergence of will and radical ideas sparked the Community Health Center Movement. A new book traces those fledgling steps that revolutionized health care. Community Health Centers: A Movement and the People Who Made It Happen is the title of this historic chronicle by author Bonnie Lefkowitz. Lefkowitz walks readers through history and brings to life the story of health centers as an offshoot of both the Civil Rights movement and the War on Poverty that over the course of four decades grew into national network that serves 16 million people, in more than 5,000 communities across the country.
