Helping Hands Health and Wellness Center on Karl Road in Columbus, OH, will receive a grant totaling $25,000 to support its existing clinic where family medicine physicians can volunteer and provide much needed care for patients. An American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Foundation Family Medicine Cares USA Grant award of $7,500 and an additional $17,500 courtesy of a recent donation the AAFP Foundation received from the Humana Foundation makes up the $25,000 award.
Understanding that during this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, physicians and other healthcare professionals in the United States are struggling to provide the care that is needed, especially free clinics located in areas of high need. With that in mind, the AAFP Foundation released the Family Medicine Cares USA award notices earlier than the scheduled notice date.
Congratulations to Helping Hands Health and Wellness Center!
