Access To Health Care
Funding from the Foundation enabled community organizations to:
- Provide medical services to low-income people of Guilford County.
- Link uninsured patients to care through a transitional nurse/case manager.
- Sustain dental care for 2,300 indigent patients.
- Provide prenatal care to women who are not eligible for Medicaid and who do not have private insurance, resulting in the healthy births of almost 5,000 babies in the past 20 years.
