Ironton Lawrence County Health Centers is marking the 2011 National Health Center Week (NHCW) with a free old fashioned ice-cream social 5-7 p.m. Wednesday at the Splashp Park on Second Street in Ironton.

This is part of a weeklong campaign (Aug. 7-13) to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s Health Centers.

The theme of this year’s NHCW is “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Serving Locally, Leading Nationally,” to underscore how health centers deliver a unique approach that targets health needs and saves taxpayer dollars.
