HealthWise at Five-Back to School Fest

Posted: Updated:

The second week of August each year is dedicated to recognizing the service and

contributions of Community, Migrant, Homeless and Public Housing Health Centers,

such as Community Health Center of Lubbock (CHCL), in providing access to

affordable, high quality, cost-effective health care to medically vulnerable and

underserved people in the U.S. "Celebrating America's Health Centers: Powering

Healthier Communities" is the theme for National Community Health Center Week 2012.

The theme is meant to showcase the multitude of ways in which America's Health

Centers are "powering" and "empowering" healthier communities.

CHCL is a nonprofit corporation that provides affordable high quality medical care,

dental care, eye care and mental health services for the general population, Migrant and

Seasonal Farmworkers, Homeless individuals and residents of Public Housing. The

organization's service area includes Lubbock, Crosby, Garza, Lynn and Terry counties.

In honor of National Health Center Week, CHCL will be hosting our Back to School Fest

and Dental Clinic at 3301 Clovis Road, Lubbock, TX 79415. There will be free

immunizations provided (with parent and shot record). Free backpacks filled with school

supplies will also be provided while supplies last. Food and snacks will be available.

Community. Sponsors for this event include: Montelongo's Mexican Restaurant, Copy
