    We write frequently about Iowa’s community health centers (also known as Federally Qualified Health Centers) and the services they provide. In 2019, our member health centers saw 216,000 patients for more than 779,000 clinical visits, including medical, dental, behavioral health, pharmacy, and enabling services. Iowa is not alone in using health centers; every state in the country has a number of health centers that all provide care to underserved populations, regardless of ability to pay. In honor of the New Year, we wanted to explore the beginning of the Health Center Movement.
