These COCA Partner Organizations serve a wide variety of healthcare professionals including: physicians, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, veterinarians, first responders, and public health practitioners.

COCA is pleased to feature the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) in our August COCA Partner Spotlight!

The NACHC was founded in 1971 to promote efficient, high quality, comprehensive health that is accessible, culturally and linguistically competent, community directed, and patient centered for all.

NACHC serves as the leading national advocacy organization in support of community-based health centers and the expansion of health care access for the medically undeserved and uninsured. They conduct research and analysis that informs both the public and private sectors about the work of health centers. NACHC also provides training, leadership development and technical assistance to health center staff and boards to support and strengthen health center operations and governance.

NACHC also works closely with chartered State and Regional Primary Care Associations (PCAs) to fulfill their shared health care mission and support the growth and development of community-based health center programs. Read more about NACHC in your state or region.

Partnerships with professional associations are vital to CDC’s ability to share information with clinicians about public health emergencies, CDC guidance, health alert messages, and training opportunities.
