This past week, Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) representatives from around the nation (including a few from our very own Portsmouth, Ohio) have been in Chicago, Illinois for the National Association of Community Health Center’s Community Health Institute learning about what makes FQHC’s tick.
Among the training sessions and vendor booths, was a glimpse of the great work FQHC’s in Ohio were doing to combat Hepatitis C. Presented by the Ohio Association of Community Health Center’s (OACHC) Tiffany White, Ms. White detailed the collaboration between OACHC, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), and several of Ohio’s FQHC’s to combat the disease in Appalachia. One such health center’s efforts highlighted was our very own Compass Community Health’s (CCH).
CCH’s clinic is committed to helping those with Hepatitis and chronic illness improve their lives while maintaining the mission of making care affordable and accessible to all and is continually looking for ways to improve delivery and access to the residents of Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky.
