National Health Center Week 2015 Toolkit
This toolkit provides AAPCHO member health organizations and other Community Health Centers (CHCs) with tools and resources to encourage their participation in National Health Center Week (NHCW) 2015. The aim is to raise awareness about the value and impact of CHCs serving Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders (AA&NHOPI) and other communities.

Policy Outreach Tools
As a best practice, we recommend that you send a thank you letter to the Member of Congress (MoC) you visited with AAPCHO in Washington, D.C. or have met with in your local districts in the past. You can take this opportunity to invite your MoC to your health center’s NHCW event. Note: Please copy Heather Skrabak when sending your thank you messages, as well as forward any follow-up responses you may receive to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
