FHCHC celebrating National Health Center Week with activities for public

This is a big week for the Flint Hills Community Health Center.
Sunday marks the start of National Health Center Week, and communications manager Jacque Ambrose says a lot of events are planned. Some are community-based, others are gearing kids up for getting back to school and another looks ahead to some ongoing political races. The goal, however, is to show what the Health Center does for the area.
