North Texas Area Community Health Centers (NTACHC) will celebrate “National Community Health Center Week” from August 8 to 14 with reminders for the community to take care of their health needs now. From getting COVID vaccinations to getting the children physicals and immunizations before school starts in person, NTACHC encourages families to make appointments now. NTACHC has three centers in Tarrant County—two in Fort Worth and one in Arlington—and is accepting new patients.
NTACHC also invites children to participate in a coloring creation activity in honor of this week that focuses on the fine work that Community Health Centers provide. Children are encouraged to submit drawings and colorings representing what health means to them for a chance to be featured in NTACHC communications. They are welcome to download the NTACHC coloring sheets found online at NTACHC Coloring Creation Activity | North Texas Area
Those who submit entries in person to any center below by August 13 will receive a toy, with one toy per child:
· Northside Center, 2332 Beverly Hills Dr., Fort Worth, TX 76114
· Southeast Center, 2909 Mitchell Blvd. Fort Worth, TX 76105
· Arlington Center, 979 N. Cooper St. Arlington, TX 76011
Gerrie Whitaker, NTACHC CEO, said, “Our mission is to improve health and wellness through accessible, compassionate and quality healthcare services for all, and this week gives us even more reason to remind the community of our healthcare offerings. If you are looking for a new provider or need a provider, I encourage you to check us out.”
NTACHC provides a full range of primary care services including adult care, pediatric care, women’s health and behavioral health, along with pharmacy, lab tests, diabetes management, health education and wellness.
