Corps Community Day
The NHSC helps bring health care professionals to the areas where they are needed the most by providing scholarships and loan repayment in exchange for a commitment of service in an underserved community. On Corps Community Day, we celebrate the impact of the NHSC on improving access to health care and highlight the importance of the primary care workforce as a whole.
NHSC sites, providers, Ambassadors, alumni and other partners including many health professions schools will host events throughout the month of October. You can join them by planning your own event or by attending one near you. Last year, 164 events took place with an estimated attendance of over 24,000 people in every state, Washington, D.C., U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Guam. With your help we can increase the participation this year.
