NEW: 2 Worcester Agencies Awarded MA Medical Society Grants

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

 

The AIDS Project and Girls, Inc.--both of Worcester-- have received grants from the Massachusetts Medical Society & Alliance Charitable Foundation to support services in 2014.  Both agencies are receiving grants for a second time from the Foundation.

AIDS Project Worcester was awarded $25,000 to continue and expand testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. The agency, the primary AIDS service organization in Central Massachusetts and the second largest in New England, was awarded a grant of $32,000 in 2011 for the same purpose from the Foundation.

Girls, Inc., Worcester, received $10,000 to support the agency’s program, Promoting Healthy Lifestyles for At-Risk Girls, and its components, Fit Girls and Friendly PEERsuasian, aimed at improving the health of vulnerable low-and moderate-income girls in the city. In 2013, it was awarded $10,000 in support of the same programs.

The grants to the agencies were two of 12 totaling $196,500 made by the foundation for 2014 to agencies across the state to support health and medical services that address a variety of health and medical services, including HIV testing, training for rape crisis counselors, teen health services, violence prevention, and heath care for the uninsured and underinsured.

The Massachusetts Medical Society & Alliance Charitable Foundation is a supporting organization of the Massachusetts Medical Society, the statewide association of physicians, and works on behalf of physicians and their families to improve the health and well-being of people across the Commonwealth. It supports physician-led volunteer initiatives that provide free care to the uninsured and increased access to care for the underserved.  More information on the MMS and Alliance Charitable Foundation may be found at http://www.mmsfoundation.org.
