MANCHESTER, NH – In celebration of National Health Center Week (August 9-15), Amoskeag Health is partnering with AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire to create a unique photo collage that celebrates the vibrant and diverse population that makes up Greater Manchester.
National Health Center Week (NHCW) is an annual celebration across the United States that focuses on raising awareness about the missions and accomplishments of health centers across the country. For more than 30 years, health centers have celebrated NHCW to showcase their programs and deliver a strong message nationwide for the importance of accessible health care for all.
Amoskeag Health is proud to celebrate NHCW through the “Show Us Your Healthy” Photo Collage Project. The project’s end goal is to display photos in the waiting rooms across their five locations of people spending time doing their favorite healthy activities. What does healthy mean to you?
“Being healthy looks different for everyone,” clarified Betsy Burtis, Chief Officer of Integrated Health Services. “We encourage anyone in the community to contribute a photo to help us show what healthy in mind and body looks like in New Hampshire.” Examples of appropriate photos include spending time with friends, playing a board game with family, cooking with a rainbow of fresh summer produce, or hiking a trail with your dog. The project centers around one idea; showing us YOUR healthy.
“AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire is so excited to partner with Amoskeag Health and celebrate National Health Center Week with this unique and fun photo collage project that celebrates the health and well-being of our diverse community,” said Jasmine Harris, Public Affairs Specialist with AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire. “We are eager to see all the different ways our friends and neighbors are staying healthy and having fun.”
In addition to Amoskeag Health patients and staff, residents of the Greater Manchester area are invited to send Amoskeag Heath a photo* showing what being healthy means to you. Please send your photos (jpeg, png or pdf) to firstname.lastname@example.org by AUGUST 15, 2020 at 4 p.m. Photos that are deemed appropriate by Amoskeag Health will be used to create a canvas print which will be displayed in the waiting room at Amoskeag Health locations.
*By sending in your photo, all participants in your photo agree to have their picture posted on social media and in Amoskeag Health’s waiting room as part of a poster collage.
