Piedmont Health Services, Inc. will mark National Health Center Week 2018 with a series of events starting Aug. 7. The events are part of a national campaign, held every year in the second week of August (this year, Aug. 12-18) to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s Community Health Centers (CHCs) and the dedicated staff who bring health care to the medically underserved.

The theme for National Health Center Week 2018 is “Celebrating Health Centers: Home of America’s health care heroes.”  The list below gives details about Piedmont Health Service’s activities for the week. [NOTE: Due to space limitations, some activities are for invited guests only and are listed for informational purposes only.] The “Back to School events” are for all families with children that may need school physicals, immunizations, and/or dental services. Please call the phone numbers listed to schedule an appointment.
