South central Missouri organizations interested in improving health care in their communities are invited to upcoming meetings hosted by the Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH). The meetings are an excellent opportunity for attendees to hear about MFH grant funding available in 2011, and learn more about the foundation, which awards $40 million to
$50 million in grants each year to nonprofits working toward better health for Missourians.
The meetings are scheduled for: WEST PLAINS: Wednesday, Oct. 13, 9 a.m., Howell County Health Department, 180 S. Kentucky.
MOUNTAIN GROVE: Wednesday, Oct. 13, 12 p.m., Mountain Grove Senior Center, 700 E. State Street.
The meetings are free and designed for nonprofits focusing on community action and health care. Community service clubs, other human service providers and community leaders also are welcome to attend.
Currently, MFH funds grants that provide operational support and address specific health issues including tobacco use, obesity, mental health and substance abuse, health literacy, primary care and women’s health.
RSVPs are encouraged for these meetings. Contact Michael Renner at 800.655.5560, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
