Five on Friday: The EPA Refuses to Ban Chlorpyrifos


Today we’re wrapping up National Health Center Week! Health centers continue to be the cornerstone of health and well-being for millions of people in the US. We are proud to work closely with community health centers around the country each and every day and we commend them for their exceptional dedication to the most underserved and hard-to-reach patients in our country. Let your health center partners and colleagues know you appreciate them -- let them know on social media by tagging clinicians and the health center and using the hashtags #NHCW19 #ValueCHCs. Now on to the five recommendations from MCN staff for the week:
