Jonesboro, Ga. (June 1, 2017) – The Heritage Community Foundation presented a $2,500 grant to Mike Conoway, Board President of the Healing Bridge Clinic, for the purchase of diabetic testing supplies for Healing Bridge Clinic patients. This grant supports the group’s mission of providing free primary healthcare to uninsured or under-insured patients in the area.
“We are excited to partner with the Healing Bridge Clinic” said Jenny Smith, Board member and past Board Chair of the Heritage Community Foundation. “This grant will help diabetic patients with the important task of monitoring their blood sugar levels as they seek to comply with their physician’s instructions. Routine blood-sugar testing helps patients avoid unnecessary complications from their diabetes”.
