National Health Center Week 2010 (Aug. 6th, 2010)
Come to West Side to celebrate National Health Center Week August 9 – 14!
“Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Turning the Vision into Reality” is the theme for National Health Center Week 2010. This theme highlights the 45 year record of Health Centers in providing affordable, high quality, cost-effective health care to all people, regardless of ability to pay. National Health Center Week 2010 also provides an opportunity to focus on the progress we have made towards fulfilling the goal of our “Access for All America” plan to provide a health care home to 30 million patients by 2015.
Throughout National Health Center Week, West Side will be hosting special events at its two primary care sites: La Clinica at 153 Cesar Chavez Street and East Side Family Clinic at 860 Arcade Street. Each day will be staffed by knowledgeable health care professionals who are dedicated to caring for the health of our diverse community.
Come and visit the lobbies of La Clinica and East Side Family Clinic to see the week’s activities and join in on the fun! We will offer free glucose and HIV testing, family planning resources, breast and cervical cancer information, and more! All events are free and open to the public!
