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 or enhance services providing community-based linkages. Michigan health center staff have the knowledge and skills needed to help patients and communities address barriers and social determinants of health. Michigan Primary Care Association (MPCA), in turn, assists health center staff through technical assistance, training, peer communication network facilitation, resource development, and best practices sharing.
