“Mini Grant” Serves 43 Uninsured/Under-insured Women
In late June, the Delco Memorial Foundation had an opportunity to apply for a $6,000 “mini grant” from the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Office of Health Equity and Minority Health Program. The grant had to be spent in one month and could not be used to pay salaries or purchase any goods.
With so many women in our community who are uninsured or under-insured, many of whom are minorities, this provided an opportunity to extend the services provided through our Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Affiliate program to provide free screening mammograms as well as any appropriate diagnostic testing.
As a result, 43 local, uninsured, under-insured or minority women were able to benefit from this program in July.
