Part of the Health Center Model is to tailor programming and care for the specific needs of the community where they are located. The work of Public House Health Center grantees is critical to ensuring access to quality primary and preventive care for residents of public housing who might otherwise go without care. Consider hosting one of the following events in recognition of Public Housing Health Center Day this year:
- Host a Health Fair at the Public Housing Complex in Your Community – whether your health center is an official Public Housing Health Center grantee or simply treats a high rate of patients who live in public housing; consider hosting a health fair onsite at the public housing complex (or nearby) in celebration of the work health centers do each day to care for this special population.
- Work with Your Local Housing Authority to Co-Author a Letter to the Editor – use NACHC’s media template and work with partners at the local Public Housing Authority to co-author a Letter to the Editor that speaks to the important work health centers do to care for residents of public housing and the important relationship the health center has with the Housing Authority.
