NACHC Turns 50! The Mission Continues

This year we celebrate the long and successful 50-year history of the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC).  Founded in 1971 by like-minded health care providers and community activists, NACHC was created to protect and nurture the potential of a strong national voice dedicated to providing access to quality health care for medically underserved people and communities all across America.  We are proud that 50 years later our mission has not only survived but thrived.

To our leaders, members, staff, state/regional associations and networks, other public and private supporters, and all others who continue to work together through NACHC to fulfill the ongoing promise of quality health care for all – we say thank you!  

Webinar Series: Propelling Our Mission Forward in NACHC’s 50th Year 

Join NACHC for a series of monthly webinars exploring issues central to the health center movement.
