Wilson N. Jones Community Foundation presents grant to Grayson County Health Clinic
The Wilson N Jones Community Foundation presented the clinic with a check for $135,000.
The money will be used for their prescription assistance program that will help provide medication to patients who are eligible for it at no cost.
"It's definitely going to go a long ways to help outcomes," Clinic Director Nanette Pickney said. "Those who are diabetic, have COPD, they have not be able to routinely take their medicines because of the cost. We'll now have that opportunity and they'll see the benefits of taking that regularly and hopefully see the healthy outcomes that are coming from that."
The program is expected to help around 1,500 people.
