NYU Lutheran Family Health Centers hosts a week of health fairs
August 21, 2013, Brooklyn, NY…
In honor of National Health Center Week, NYU Lutheran Family Health Centers (LFHC) hosted a number of Medical Home health fairs from August 13 through 16. The aim was to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) as local solutions for affordable and accessible health care.
The week-long event attracted hundreds of community residents and offered access to free health screenings, giveaways, wellness information, voter registration, information from community agencies and much more. This event was sponsored by HealthPlus Amerigroup.
