CHC of Cape Cod Celebrates Community Health Center Week

Three special events during week of August 14-18th

Community Health Center of Cape Cod is organizing a number of events from August 13-19 to celebrate National Health Center Week. Each year, health centers across the nation celebrate the work and services they provide to populations in need within their communities on designated days during the week.

One in every 13 people in the United States gets their care in a community health center. Health Centers deliver high quality, cost effective, accessible care to all people, regardless of their ability to pay or insurance status.
