French Hospital Medical Center recently received a $10,000 grant from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation.
Grant funds will be used to institute a community wellness program to support preventive health education classes and expand existing educational services and exercise classes, specifically for low-income and Latino populations, according to a news release.
Bank of America has supported French Hospital Medical Center with more than $80,000 in grants over the past eight years, which have helped provide mentoring for student nurses, free mammograms for underserved women, cancer support groups for Spanish-speaking patients and support for homeless patients, among other things.
