$3.4 Million In Grants To Address Health Care Disparities In Kansas City
The health care disparity in Kansas City is largely shaped by where you live and how much money you make.
There are regions of the metro with quality access to health care and those without it. The Health Forward Foundation is fighting this by awarding $3.4 million in grants to 36 nonprofit organizations. The idea is to make people, especially in low-income neighborhoods, healthier. Two grant recipients share their goals for improving health care in the city.
- Adriana Pecina, senior program officer, Health Forward
- Maxfield Kaniger, chief executive officer, Kanbe's Markets
- Justin Matthews, executive director, Reconciliation Services
The Health Forward Foundation is an underwriter of KCUR.
