60th Anniversary Special Program.

To celebrate its 60th anniversary, the Foundation instituted a special grant cycle, targeting interventions designed to address the burden of cardiovascular disease in vulnerable populations, focusing on programs which included active community outreach integrated with health care services. The Foundation was particularly interested in outreach strategies that incorporated community health workers, patient navigators, peer educators, counselors or other outreach workers and programs which focused on prevention. The successful proposals received grants of $60,000 a year for two years.

The Foundation is very pleased to announce that the recipients of its 60th Anniversary Grants are:
• Abottsford Family Practice & Counseling Network - Heart to Heart
• Penn Center for Community Health Workers – IMPaCT Primary Care
• Puentes du Salud – Promatoras Program in South Philadelphia

The Foundation also made one year grants of $30,000 each to:
• Project H.O.M.E. – Community Health Worker Led Outreach and Health Screenings
• Health Promotion Council of SEPA – Corazones en Accion
