EXPANDING ACCESS. ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME.
CHroniCles, a special project of the RCHN Community Health Foundation, the Geiger Gibson Program in Community Health Policy at the Milken Institute School of Public Health and Health Services at The George Washington University, and the National Association of Community Health Centers, is dedicated to highlighting and recording the contributions made by community health centers across the country in delivering high-quality and comprehensive primary health care services to 28 million people each year.
The goal of CHroniCles is to record the vibrant, diverse, and important living history of each community health center and of the health center movement as a whole, and to make accessible to visitors everywhere. Every health center story is unique, and reflects the needs and aspirations of its community. CHroniCles aims to honor the rich heritage and ongoing work of community health centers by having each health center document its own story to create an on-line, web-based tapestry.
The site showcases contributed narratives, photos, data and other materials to advance an understanding and awareness of the vital role that community health centers play in the American health care system. CHroniCles celebrates the distinctive history of the health center movement, and the significant role community health centers fulfill in the lives of millions across the country.
