Spotlight: Linking Patients to Vital Primary Care

One in every 15 Americans depends on their locally-based community health centers (CHCs), which in 1965 began providing primary care to underserved populations. Each is staffed by a team of medical, dental and behavioral professionals critical to their region's healthcare network and who deliver high quality, cost effective services. During the annual recognition of CHCs, we're showcasing a union member who plays an important role in assuring her community's good health.
 

Spotlight: Health Professionals Providing Quality Dental Care

Dental hygienists play a vital role in preventive care, education and treatment in a variety of settings, including private practices as well as public clinics and schools.

During the annual recognition of these dedicated caregivers we're spotlighting union members devoted to quality clinical, therapeutic and educational dental services for those they serve.
