NEW Health Celebrates National Health Center Week

From August 13-19, 2017, community health centers across the country will be celebrating National Health Center Week. National Health Center Week is an annual event meant to bring awareness to community health centers across the country, and to highlight all they do for their host communities. Organizations all across the nation will be holding events throughout the week.

NEW Health has special cause to celebrate this week, as NEW Health CEO, Jim Luisi is set to be inaugurated as the head of the National Association of Community Health Centers at the end of this month. The position is one of great significance, as Mr. Luisi will be tasked with looking after the more than 1,400 community health centers across the country, as well as the 25 million patients they serve.

NEW Health will be participating in two events this week. The first is the North End Jamboree on August 17, from 12 PM – 3 PM. The second is Unity Day in Charlestown on August 19, from 12 PM – 4pm.
