National Health Center Week
August 8-14, 2021
The staff and patients at the Mission Neighborhood Health Center had a week full of events from August 8 through August 14, as we participated in National Health Center Week 2021. NHCW aims to raise awareness about the importance of community health centers nationwide. 1 in 11 people across the United States receives medical care from a health center.
As part of the week-long celebration, MNHC reached out and provided free lunch to people experiencing homelessness while offering medical services at our health clinic in the Resource Center. At the Excelsior and Shotwell Clinics, staff shared a healthy gift with patients as a token of sincere appreciation for trusting us with their health. MNHC’s staff at Mission/Bernal, Excelsior, and Shotwell Clinics, and at the Resource Center were surprised with coffee and bagels as part of Employee Appreciation Day.
MNHC’s Executive Director, Brenda Storey, and Chief Medical Officer Jaime Ruiz spoke on Spanish-language radio about the importance of vaccination.
Additionally, Dr. Ricardo Alvarez spoke about the importance of preventing falls among our elders.
