Native American Health Center (NAHC) has announced their plans for a celebration of their new facility expansion on Thursday, February 2nd. The three-story building, a newly renovated furniture store, represents not only a physical expansion of NAHC’s capacity to deliver care to its community members, but an expansion of their institutional commitment to Oakland as well.

Native American Health Center has been a dedicated servant of the Native communities in the Bay Area since 1972, offering medical, dental, behavioral health, diabetes and substance abuse prevention, as well as HIV/HCV care coordination and prevention. This expansion will allow NAHC to immediately enhance its administrative capacity, while also allow it to look forward to the eventual expansion of its clinical capacity and increase its already profound impact on the Oakland community.

The celebration will take place at 2950 International Boulevard between 3pm and 7pm and includes both an open house and reception with guest speakers, Native American dance and drumming performances, and unique Native American-inspired fusion cuisine courtesy of Wahpepah’s Kitchen, the first Native American woman-owned catering business in California.
