BATON ROUGE (Aug. 10, 2020) – CareSouth Medical and Dental is hosting a fresh fruit and vegetables drive-thru giveaway at its clinics in Baton Rouge, Zachary, Plaquemine and Donaldsonville Aug. 11 through Aug. 14 as part of its National Health Center Week celebration. The event is free and open to the public.  Produce will be given on a first come, first serve basis.

This year’s theme is Community Health Centers: Lighting the way for healthier communities today and in the future.

“National Health Center Week is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work of our staff and medical professionals who are helping to make health care accessible to everyone especially those who are underserved,” said CEO Matthew Valliere. “We’re proud of the work that we do and we want to showcase the impact CareSouth has in serving our communities.”
