National Health Center Week is August 7-13! Here are five ways you can celebrate by making your own health a priority!
1. Get Vaccinated or Boosted for COVID-19
Need your COVID-19 vaccine or booster? NHFHS’ medical offices offer the Moderna vaccine and booster to all eligible individuals in our community Monday-Friday from 8 am – 3:30 pm — no appointment needed!
2. Schedule Your Next Primary Care or Dental Appointment
Are you up-to-date on your primary care and dental preventive appointments? Routine check-ups are important and can help detect health problems early when they may be easier to treat.
3. Sign Up as a Health Center Advocate
Community Health Centers, like New Horizon Family Health Services, are the nation’s largest primary care provider and the safety net for nearly 30 million Americans. Support the work we do by signing up as a Health Center Advocate at www.hcadvocacy.org/join!
4. Get Screened for HIV
