National Health Center week recognizes the services and contributions of community health centers. Health centers not only prevent illness and foster wellness in the most challenging populations, they produce innovative solutions to the most pressing healthcare issues in their communities. They reach beyond the walls of conventional medicine to address the factors that may cause sickness, such as lack of nutrition, mental illness, homelessness and addiction. Because of their long record of success in innovation, managing healthcare costs, and reducing chronic disease, leaders in Congress have declared health centers a model of care that offers a “bipartisan solution to the primary care access problems” facing our nation.
While there are countless reasons to celebrate Family First Health, among the most important is our 46 year history of providing access to affordable, high-quality, cost-effective care to anyone in the community who needs it.
This National Health Center Week, Family First Health is promoting its Fuel a Healthy Body campaign with some fun videos and photos from staff. Head to our Facebook page, vote for your favorite and they can win lunch from LettUsKnow! Check out the videos below, but don’t forget to go online and vote!
Fueling a Healthy Body is something we can all do by just making small steps toward a healthier life. It can be as easy as getting 8 hours of sleep, adding fruits and veggies into your meals, or being a little more active with the kids. Learn more about our #FuelAHealthyBody campaign here.
