National Health Center Week Events 2023
National Health Center Week is an annual event that brings together health centers from across the country to celebrate their significant contributions to the healthcare landscape. This year’s National Health Center Week’s theme is Roadmap to a Stronger America. HealthPoint’s local clinics are proudly joining this nationwide movement to showcase the innovative ways health centers are delivering high-quality healthcare, improving health outcomes, and narrowing health disparities. With a host of exciting events planned, including photography contests, back-to-school events, webinars, and more, this year’s National Health Center Week promises to be an enriching experience for all.
Are you an aspiring photographer? This year’s theme is “The Roadmap to a Stronger America.” We are looking for original photography that focuses on local places and the roads that get us there! These contests offer the perfect opportunity to inspire and engage individuals of all ages, encouraging them to express themselves through photography while highlighting the importance of local health and connectivity.
The contest opens July 10, and the submission deadline is July 31, 2023, at 5 PM. You must complete the form and email your submissions to the address listed on the form to enter the contest. Click on the clinic in your area below to be taken to the submission form.
