Greater Lawrence Family Health Center receives HHS funding
LAWRENCE — The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced that the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center is a recipient of a $225,000 grant for the agency’s Affordable Care Act Teaching Health Center (THC) Graduate Medical Education (GME) Payment Program, it was announced yesterday by Congresswoman Niki Tsongas.
The program assists organizations in increasing the number of primary care residents and dentists trained in community-based ambulatory patient care settings. The current supply of the primary care workforces is insufficient to meet the health needs of the U.S. population, and this program intends to alleviate some of that concern.
“Using federal funds to partner with local communities to create jobs and address public needs puts us on a solid path to help strengthen our economy,” Tsongas said. “The significant return on this investment will have ongoing reverberations – with this money this important community institution will be able to expand their staff and at the same time, they will be aiding the health of our communities. This is a big win for the well-being of residents, as well as for our local economy.”
