The Grace Clinic of Yadkin Valley has received a grant of $7,000 from The Winston-Salem Foundation for its prescription voucher program. Funds will be used to pay for necessary prescription medication and diabetic supplies for patients of Grace Clinic.
Hugh Quinn, executive director, stated, “This is great news for the patients of Grace Clinic. Everyone knows that the cost of prescription medication continues to rise, thereby creating more barriers for people without resources who need life-sustaining medications. This grant will help to ensure that patients can obtain their meds to maintain and improve their health.”
The Grace Clinic is a free medical clinic for low income adults, age 18-64, without health insurance, residing in Surry, Wilkes and Yadkin counties.
