National Health Week

This is “National Health Center Week,” a time for community health centers across the state to highlight the services they provide and reach out to the communities they serve. Linda Ross is CEO of the Community HealthCare Association of the Dakotas, and says they want people to know more about the services they provide.

Events set for the week include the grand opening of a new clinic in De Smet, health fairs and screenings, a coloring contest and employee picnics. Ross says under the Affordable Care Act, community health centers will become even more important in health care and wellness.

Ross says community health centers are focused mostly on areas of South Dakota that don’t have a lot of health care options.
