Navigating health care today is about so much more than just medical care — 80% of what influences a person’s health has nothing to do with clinical care.
UnitedHealthcare recently awarded more than $11 million in Empowering Health grants across the country, including $2.25 million in the Mid-Atlantic region and $555,000 to a number of organizations in Maryland. Joining us to discuss this is Joe Ochipinti, the CEO for UnitedHealthcare of the Mid-Atlantic region.
The organizations in Maryland receiving grants are:
- Maryland Food Bank – $255,000 to increase education about the Supporting Wellness at Pantries nutrition program.
- CASA – $150,000 to support COVID-19 vaccine and health education outreach within immigrant, Latino and working-class communities.
- Springboard Community Services – $95,000 to support public campaigns that normalize mental health services.
- Community Crisis Services – $55,000 to provide mental health first-aid training to first responders and other community members.
