Our choice for National Community Health Advocate this month July is Javier Lopez in Bronx, NY. Javier is the Director of School Health and Legislative Liaison at Urban Health Plan, Inc. (UHP) and a force to be reckoned with when it comes to generating the highest response rates to advocacy alerts for Community Heath Centers. Javier never misses an opportunity to rally the grassroots troops at health center board, management, and all staff meetings. His particular passion is enlisting new voices to build and energize advocacy efforts; and to spread the word that every voice counts. Javier Lopez deserves star status for his ongoing advocacy efforts and dedication to the health center movement! A big round of applause and hearty congratulations to our July National Community Health Advocate of the Month; Javier Lopez!
