Representative Steve Cohen visited two Memphis health centers during National Health Center Week and shared the following reflections in a newsletter to constituents:

“On Monday, I attended the Christ Community Health Services Lunch and Learn, and on Tuesday, I attended the Memphis Health Center Legislative Luncheon. Health centers are important to many Memphians by providing health care services to people who otherwise might not have close access to a healthcare facility. Memphis has health deserts, as well as food deserts. The Affordable Care Act has provided increased federal funding for Community Health Centers, and the expansion of Medicaid has led to growth in the number of health centers across the country and has improved their capacity to provide health care services.”
