NACHC has launched a new online resource featuring the unique history and accomplishments of America’s Community Health Centers. The new site comes as health centers celebrate 50 years as a vital movement in expanding access to quality and affordable primary and preventive healthcare services to millions of uninsured and medically underserved people nationwide. Features include an interactive timeline of key milestones in the health center movement; archive videos and photographs documenting the health center movement; and infographics, badges, and other communications tools to spread the word about health centers.
The new site comes as NACHC plans a host of anchor events in conjunction with its 2015 conference programs and other special activities around the 50th anniversary. The goal of the 50th anniversary campaign is to not only celebrate the people and achievements of the health center movement, but also bring into focus the value of health centers to the American healthcare system—today and in the future. Celebration events and activities will take place throughout the year. To keep up with 50th anniversary campaign follow #CHC50 on Twitter.
