Photos and article by Charlie McKee

On Wednesday, Aug. 20, Hidalgo Medical Services (HMS) welcomed the community at its five clinics in Silver City, Cliff, Bayard, Mimbres, and Lordsburg to a joint celebration of "Health Center Day." Booths were set up, and red-shirted HMS staff and local businesses were ready to help people with free health screenings, information about insurance and Medicare, nutrition advice, and much more – not to mention free lunch.

Carmen Maynes, Director of Family Support Services, stated that, in addition to celebrating its patients and their family members, Health Center Day was organized in conjunction with National Health Center Week to recognize HMS's community partners who collaborate in improving the health of the community. Maynes reported that HMS offers quality medical, dental, mental health, and family support services to the community. She also highlighted HMS's role as a teaching health center for tomorrow's physicians with its new medical residency training program established in 2013.
