COLUMBUS, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”) presented a $75,000 donation to the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA), the philanthropic arm of the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians (GAFP), in commemoration of the organization’s 75th anniversary. The donation will support the GHFA’s Rural Georgia Urgent Need Grants program, which is designed to improve access to quality health care for the underserved in rural Georgia communities.
To help individuals better manage chronic disease and reduce the need for emergency room visits, the program covers everything from the cost of infant formula and maternal health counseling for new moms to diabetic strips for the uninsured.
“MolinaCares is dedicated to building stronger communities and removing barriers to health care,” said Carolyn Ingram, executive director of The Molina Healthcare Charitable Foundation. “We are proud to support the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance to connect individuals and families to the quality health care services they deserve.”
“We are grateful for this generous donation from MolinaCares,” said Alice House, M.D., a leader of the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance and past president of the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians. “With this grant, we will be able to provide much-needed support to those in need in the most rural areas of Georgia.”
Part of the funds from the MolinaCares grant will go toward Mercy Med of Columbus in support of their Access to Healthcare for the Underserved in West Georgia project.
