Laurel Health Celebrates National Community Health Center Week

Marking National Health Center Week (Aug 9 - 14)

By Kristy Warren


As we mark National Community Health Center Week, we thank our tireless Laurel Health Centers staff for all they do to further health and wellness in our communities!


This year’s theme is “chemistry for strong communities,” which looks at the many elements and building blocks that support healthy communities. From compassion and wellness to health outreach and sliding fee programs, our centers are committed to ensuring everyone has access to high-quality care close-to-home.


To celebrate National Community Health Center Week (Aug 8 - 14), our team is heading to the Tioga County Fair on August 10th and 11th to answer your health questions, provide free wellness screenings, and administer COVID-19 Moderna shots to anyone who hasn't had a chance to be vaccinated. Everyone 18 and up is eligible. There is no cost, and no appointment is needed. Laurel Health will schedule participants' second dose at the LHC location of their choice. 


The Laurel Health Centers offer award-winning family medicine, behavioral health services, and specialty care for the whole family throughout Tioga & Bradford Counties, including sites in Blossburg, Mansfield, Lawrenceville, Westfield, Elkland, Troy, and Wellsboro, PA. Services include primary care, pediatrics, women’s health, preventive wellness care, dental services, internal medicine, chiropractic care, sports medicine, mental health counseling, nutrition / diabetes education, care coordination, chronic disease management, insurance enrollment assistance, and more. 


As federally qualified health centers, Laurel Health is committed to assuring everyone receives the care they need, even when they can't afford it, through a sliding fee program and pharmacy discounts designed to help income-eligible families with deductibles, co-pays, and healthcare costs. 


Please stop by our Tioga County Fair booth to chat with our providers on August 10th and 11th. We'll be offering FREE blood pressure screenings, Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, wellness information, and fun giveaways for the whole family.
