National Health Center Week Planning Checklist

National Health Center Week 2013 (NHCW), August 11-17, planning is in full swing, and, as always, the National Association of Community Health Centers needs the help of every Primary Care Association and Community Health Center to ensure all events are posted and visits from Members of Congress are tracked!

Please help NACHC and HCAN promote NHCW to your health centers between now and August

The password to post events to the NHCW website is: healthy  Some PCAs choose to collect all of their health centers’ events for tracking purposes and have one person at the PCA post all events.  Robbie Adams, HCAN Communications Manager would be happy to post events.  Please let her know events as you schedule them at   Here are some ideas to help with your planning:

    • Remember the event posting password (healthy) for posting events to the NHCWeek website
    • Invite elected officials
    • Send Member of Congress attendance confirmations to Robbie Adams and she will send that information to
    • Include NHCW reminders in newsletters
    • Mention NHCW during board and committee meetings
    • Post about NHCW each week on your organization’s social media sites
