National Health Center Week is an opportunity for Ryan Health to celebrate YOU! All of our centers are participating in this annual nationwide event to raise awareness of the work community health centers do like Ryan Health. We’ll be highlighting a wide range of our services as well as community resources that help maintain YOUR health.

“National Health Center Week is a great opportunity to highlight the work we do connecting people to healthcare and resources in the community,” says Brian P. McIndoe, President, and CEO of Ryan Health. “Maintaining health can be a challenge, we want you to know there are support services in the community that can assist in your overall wellness.”
