Health Centers have a critical role in patient and community education, outreach, and health navigation/coordination. There are a multitude of current and upcoming opportunities for Health Centers to expand services beyond enrollment, and begin providing community-based service linkages. Michigan Health Center staff have the knowledge and skills needed to help patients and communities address barriers and social determinants of health. MPCA, in turn, assists Health Center staff through technical assistance.
