Event Description: Health Delivery, Inc. is marking National Health Center Week 2012 (NHCW) by hosting their 5th annual Back to School Health Round Up Fairs as part of a weeklong campaign (August 5-11) to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s Health Centers as local solutions. More than 30 bikes and back backs filled with school supplies will be given away after the children receive their medical and or dental exams. The theme of this year’s NHCW is “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Powering Healthier Communities,” to underscore how Community Health Centers provide access to affordable, high quality, cost effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people throughout the United States. One of the bright spots in America’s health care system, health centers provide a health care home to over 20 million people at 8,000 sites nationwide. Their model of care was rated as one of the most effective programs by then-President George W. Bush’s Office of Management and Budget. Indeed, presidents from both parties and Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle have long-recognized the value of health centers and supported their expansion.

Now more than ever public support is needed for health centers as Congress attempts to reduce the budget deficit with spending cuts to the program and changes to Medicaid that could further reduce access to preventive care for millions of people. To find out more, please visit www.nachc.org.
