The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA) recently awarded Albany’s Made Whole Healthcare Solutions $5,000 from the 2018 Community Health Grant Program to improve the management of diabetes for underserved patients from Albany’s Samaritan Clinic. In addition to medication and supplies, diabetic patients will also receive instruction on proper nutrition, exercise and wellness. Because Family Physicians provide full scope patient care for citizens of all ages they are often acutely aware of health challenges facing their local communities.
Albany Family Physician, Dr. Michael Satchell (2nd R) identified this need in Albany and sponsored the grant. He is pictured above with GHFA Director of Philanthropy Amy Turner (R) and Made Whole Healthcare’s President Nedra Fortson (L).
The Alliance is the philanthropic arm of the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians. Our nationally recognized Community Health Grant Program exists to support and create momentum in an area of need and provide vital funds for family physician sponsored healthcare projects across Georgia. Since launching the program in 2012, the Alliance has awarded 50 charitable organizations more than $222,000.
