The Greater Hartford Area
The Health Center is centrally located in the Connecticut town of Farmington and is part of the Greater Harford area, whose richly diverse community is home to nearly 200 cultural,
arts and heritage organizations, including art and historic museums, theatre, dance, opera, and concert venues, and dining options from the Caribbean, South America, Europe, the Middle
East and Asia. Major area festivals are celebrated year round, such as the Greater Hartford Jazz Festival, the Amistad Foundation's Juneteenth Celebration, Riverfest-July 4th weekend,
and the Sunken Garden Poetry Festival, as well as annual events including celebrations of our African American, Puerto Rican, West Indian, and Native American communities. The Health
Center is also conveniently located about two hours by car from both Boston and New York City.
In addition, outstanding local
recreation areas offer camping, hiking, horseback riding canoeing/tubing, skiing, golfing, and fresh and salt water beaches. Professional sporting teams in the area include the Double A
