Community Health Center Week

Greater Roslindale Medical and Dental Center celebrates National Community Health Center Week!

National Community Health Center Week, August 4th -10th, is an annual celebration to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s community health centers over the past five decades.

GRMDC is proud to be one of the community health centers serving 28 million patients nationally.  This number continues to grow along with the demand for affordable primary care. In addition to their long history as health care homes to millions, health centers produce innovative solutions to the most pressing health care issues in their communities and reach beyond the walls of conventional medicine to address the social determinants of health affecting special patient populations. Each year we celebrate the work and services health centers provide to special populations within their community on designated days during the week.

We will be celebrating National Community Health Center Week 2019 by focusing on a different theme each day.
