The Project Access program has received a $12,500 grant to coordinate care for uninsured Sedgwick County residents who are experiencing serious gynecological health issues.
Through the Wichita Community Foundation, the George R. Tiller, M.D. Memorial Fund for the Advancement of Women’s Health gives grants to nonprofits to “provide comprehensive health services, support, and compassion to vulnerable women to enhance their ability to realize their dreams.” Dr. Tiller, a MSSC member, was slain in 2009.
“This grant will help us coordinate donated health care for many women with critical health issues,” said Shelley Duncan, executive director of Central Plains Health Care Partnership, a nonprofit affiliate of the MSSC. “It will help us connect women most in need of care to doctors, other providers and services.”
