National Primary Care week is focused on “Health Outside of the Hospital” and the importance of everyone doing their part to stay healthy and safe.
When it comes to the care and protection of our loved ones most would agree that putting our trust in physicians who will ensure we are healthy and cared for is key. This year, National Primary Care week is focused on “Health Outside of the Hospital” and the importance of everyone doing their part to stay healthy and safe.
Happening each year in the second week of October, the 22nd annual National Primary Care Week (NPCW) is an opportune time to spotlight the impact of COVID-19 on communities and healthcare and how relationships with primary care physicians play a key role.
All across the nation we’re celebrating this week by honoring all of the work primary care practices do. Activities for medical students and health trainees are being offered to spread awareness about the pivotal role primary care plays in the U.S. healthcare system.
Primary care plays such a major role in our health as it’s the first place people turn to when they need treatment or have a health concern.
Family medicine is especially important as these doctors care for all patients and develop close relationships with families as they move through different stages of their lives. Really someone could see the same primary care physician from birth to 100 years if possible.
These doctors also play a key role in delivering care for the vastly underserved communities and populations that don’t have access to traditional care and they are also advocates and teachers helping people to understand the importance of health and caring for the human body and how to manage illness.
At MedXwaste we would like to take this time to say thank you to all of our brave and honorable physicians and healthcare clients who give selflessly each day to ensure families remain healthy even amidst a continuing global pandemic.
