GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- It's "National Community Health Center Week" and Marillac Health, in Grand Junction, is joining in on the celebration.
The national campaign is to raise awareness about the work of health centers. Centers like Marillac Health provide affordable health, dental and vision care all in one place, for those who might not otherwise be able to afford it.
"It's just a great reminder, and an opportunity, to recognize our patients and our staff and say 'thank you'", says Kristy Schmidt, Community Relations and Development Director for Marillac Health.
Marillac Health is celebrating by having an ice cream day, a company picnic and they're also giving out healthy snacks to their patients throughout Health Center Week. It runs from August 4 through August 10.
