Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation Receives Grant

Louisville, KY

Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's Foundation received a $51,000 grant from the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation, Inc., to fund a diabetes education and outreach program in three Kentucky counties. The year-long program will be directed to the underserved and rapidly growing Hispanic population through school presentations and community events. The project hopes to provide 1,200 individuals with glucose screenings and reach thousands more through direct mail and educational literature.
