Community Health Center Relocates
Institute: National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS)
The NIAMS Community Health Center (CHC), which provides health care services to people affected by arthritis, lupus, and other rheumatic diseases, has moved to a new location. After 10 years of serving patients in Unity Health Care's Upper Cardozo Health Center in northwest Washington, DC, the CHC has relocated to the Cardinal McCarrick Center of the Spanish Catholic Center of Catholic Charities in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The CHC offers patient care with access to a specialist, health information, and referral to clinical studies for the prevention and treatment of rheumatic diseases. There will be no change in the CHC's services in the new facility.
You can find more information about the CHC at www.niams.nih.gov/About_Us/Mission_and_Purpose/Community_Outreach/Health_Partnership/chcfact.asp.
