OHI to Mark the 50th Anniversary of National Health Center Programs with a Community Family Health Fair

nhcw-ohiOcean Health Initiatives (OHI), a federally qualified health center (FQHC), is hosting its annual Community Family Health Fair, rain or shine, Monday, August 10, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., at OHI’s Lakewood Health Center, 101 Second St., Lakewood, N.J., to celebrate the 50th anniversary of National Health Center Programs during National Health Center Week 2015 (NHCW).

OHI will be joining with thousands of communities around the nation to recognize and celebrate 50 years of success in health care delivery through the work and programs of Community Health Centers. The theme of National Health Center Week 2015, August 9 -15, is America’s Health Centers: Celebrating Our Legacy, Shaping Our Future. The National Health Center Week campaign is designed to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s Health Centers, the largest and most successful system of primary health care.

NJPCA (New Jersey Primary Care Association) is the sponsor of the Fair at which many organizations and vendors will provide free health screenings, health education and information, fun and games for the entire family, and giveaways. For vendor space contact OHI at promotions@ohinj.org.

OHI is offering free screenings, such as dental, blood pressure, and glucose readings. As part of its Live Healthy Ocean County program, Ocean County Health Department will do screenings for lead, osteoporosis, stroke risk, blood pressure, and BMI (Body Mass Index).

Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey and Horizon NJ Health is supplying a DJ and music, cholesterol screenings for the first 25 people, blood pressure screenings, and giveaways. United Healthcare will have a mobile unit and will provide health screenings, and giveaways. Amerigroup will also provide health education and giveaways.

Dr. Theresa Berger, the CEO of OHI, said, “Every day in our waiting rooms I witness the value of having a patient-centered health care home. When people have a place to go for regular care, they use it and stay healthier. We provide a range of services onsite – primary care services, pediatrics, pharmacy, dentistry, even mental health services. Our patients not only get the care they need under one roof, but they are treated as individuals, with dignity and respect. This is what health care should be, and what we celebrate during National Health Center Week.”

National Health Center Week, recognized by health centers throughout the United States, was spearheaded in New Jersey by the New Jersey Primary Care Association (NJPCA), a nonprofit corporation that represents the organizational providers and affiliates of community-based ambulatory health care statewide.
