The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) will release a new report titled, “Health Wanted: The State of Unmet Need for Primary Health Care in America” at a Capitol Hill briefing on Tuesday, March 20, 2012, at 10:30 a.m.
More than ever millions of Americans are turning to their neighborhood community health centers for their primary health care needs. These needs continue to outpace the growth of the infrastructure needed for our safety-net providers. The briefing comes as the nation marks the two-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA aims to expand the reach of Community Health Centers across the nation.
