Reaching Out to Our Community

It’s great when we receive new awards that directly impact our community.

I just saw a new position come across my desk for a program coordinator for research at MedStar Family Choice. The position is fully funded by a Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) grant for “Promoting Medicaid Delivery Models for the National Diabetes Prevention Program through Managed Care Organizations”.  

The grant from the Maryland DHMH shows support for our work in our communities and this program is coming directly to members of those communities, including those seen in ambulatory care facilities throughout the region. MedStar’s focus on population health supports our ongoing MedStar 2020 vision and our mission of advancing health.  Collaborators on this grant include the MedStar Diabetes Institute and the MedStar Community Health team.

I look forward to future work with our community and best of luck to the growing team!
