August 2013 – January 2014
The Free Clinic, Care Alliance Health Center, Neighborhood Family Practice, and NorthEast Ohio Neighborhood Health Services, are partnering again this year with the City of Cleveland Department of Public Health to highlight the remarkable work that is done by Community Health Centers both locally and nationally.
The theme this year is “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Transforming Health Care in our Local Communities.” We will focus on the successes of Cleveland’s Community Health Centers over the past year and address the challenges and prospects we face in the coming year as we welcome New Access Points and a decision for our state regarding Medicaid Expansion.
