The MutualOne Charitable Foundation recently awarded $2,500 to the MetroWest Free Medical Program, to expand health education and patient follow-up activities for uninsured and under-insured individuals in local communities.
The Free Medical Program serves as an entry point to the health care system for those in MetroWest who are uninsured or insufficiently insured by providing general medical and specialty care to meet their immediate health care needs.
It also engages with community partners to connect patients with social services, health insurance enrollment, and other resources. The grant from the MutualOne Charitable Foundation will support the program’s expansion for health education and patient follow-up, to improve health care services to individuals with chronic disease. This is the second consecutive year the Foundation has donated $2,500 in support of the program.
“The Free Medical Program provided general medical and specialty care at no cost to thousands of medically underserved individuals last year alone,” stated Robert P. Lamprey, chairman of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation. “The services it provides are vital to the well-being of many residents of the communities we serve.”
