U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) received the Distinguished Community Health Advocate Award today from the National Association of Community Health Centers for his work supporting Community Health Centers at a National Health Center Week ceremony in Aurora at the Metro Community Health Providers Network (MCPN) – North Aurora Family Health Services Center.

“I’ve always been deeply impressed with MCPN and their growth over the years is a testament to their success in expanding access to health care for the underserved.”

Community Health Centers provide comprehensive primary health care services to medically underserved communities and vulnerable individuals and families with otherwise limited access to health care.  Health Centers operate as locally owned community organizations at about 9,000 sites across the nation.

"Members of Congress are faced with tough choices every day, and Congressman Coffman has consistently, repeatedly stood up on behalf of health centers," said Jana Eubank from NACHC at the awards ceremony.

“Community health clinics have been the foundation for providing care to the uninsured and underinsured in Colorado and I want to do everything I can to support them.”
