The University’s Edward R. Leahy Center Clinic for the Uninsured recently received an $8,000 grant from The Blue Ribbon Foundation of Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania to support access to care for the uninsured.

The University’s Leahy Center Clinic is a free clinic offering primary health care, physical therapy, and counseling services to uninsured patients of all ages. The Clinic will use the grant to purchase pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and immunizations that will serve no fewer than 750 uninsured individuals during the coming year. 

“We expect that the accessibility of necessary pharmaceuticals will increase patient compliance with physician recommendations and that free immunizations with help reduce the need for clinic visits through preventive care,” said Andrea Mantione, director of the Leahy Clinic. “We are grateful to The Blue Ribbon Foundation for making it possible for us to purchase these important supplies.
