California Endowment Gives Fresno County Group a Grant to Improve Health Care Services for Poor, Uninsured
The California Endowment today will announce a $621,721 grant to the Fresno Metro Ministry, a group focusing on improving health services for the county's poor and uninsured, the Fresno Bee reports. The three-year grant will be used to help 1,000 low-income Fresno County residents participate in multi-lingual neighborhood roundtable discussions on health care needs and ways to provide access to services. Ideas generated by discussions will be brought to local health care executives and the county Board of Supervisors. The money will be used to help the Local Health Care Coalition, an advocacy group established by the ministry, continue its efforts to improve health care access, according to the Rev. Walt Parry, executive director of the ministry (Correa, Fresno Bee, 7/18).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
