Today, May 6th, 2014, friends and supporters of EMKCHC will have 24-hours to go online and donate to the Health Center to help it continue its mission of making healthcare accessible to everyone.
Supporting Kennedy CHC as part of the Worcester Gives Back initiative will allow its dedicated staff and providers to continue to make an impact on the health and wellbeing of the community. Successes for the Health Center showcase how:
- A dental exam and panoramic x-ray in a Kennedy CHC dental clinic helped identify a rare, benign tumor that could have resulted in facial and jaw abnormalities
- Kennedy CHC’s Worcester Jails: Health Care Connection Program is continually linking recently released and often at-risk inmates with important medical services
- Ninety-two percent of our new mothers are breast feeding their infants which is far above the Healthy People 2020 goal of 81.9%
- The asthma pharmacology treatment at Kennedy CHC is 95.3% compared to the BPHC average of 73%
These stories and statistics are highlights of the tremendous impact being made everyday by Kennedy CHC. The continued financial support of the community will allow the Health Center to meet the challenges of providing for our very needy and very important population.
