Norristown residents can get a bevy of free health services and information this week from two Philadelphia health leaders. Enroll America is joining with Delaware Valley Community Health (DVCH) to celebrate National Health Center Week (August 10-16) by hosting a free health fair at Norristown Regional Health Center from 10am to 2pm Wednesday. There will be dental and medical screenings, nutrition information and giveaways and a raffle. The event is open to the press.
As part of National Health Center Week, Enroll America today recognized Delaware Valley Community Health for their work to help Philadelphia-area residents get the care they need, educate the community about their health coverage options, and enroll the uninsured in quality coverage.
National Health Center Week aims to create awareness of health center programs and the invaluable work they do in communities across the country to ensure Americans at every income level can get access to affordable health care. Enroll America and Delaware Valley Community Health have partnered on expanding access to affordable health coverage in southeastern Pennsylvania, and due in part to their work, more than 75,000 Philadelphia County residents and nearly 40,000 Montgomery County residents have enrolled in quality, affordable health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
“Delaware Valley Community Health’s work has made them a true cornerstone of our community and a trusted resource to the uninsured here in the Delaware Valley,” said Neil Deegan, Pennsylvania State Director for Enroll America. “Thanks in part to their hard work, we’ve seen a dramatic decline in the uninsured rate, but we know there’s more work to be done. Together, we’ll continue our efforts across the city to ensure that affordable health coverage becomes a way of life in the Delaware Valley.
