The Children's Health Clinic of Lubbock has received a $5,000 grant from the Lubbock Area Foundation (LAF) to fund pharmacy assistance and laboratory services for unfunded pediatric patients. The LAF grant will be used to purchase prescriptions and pay for laboratory tests for children that do not have health insurance.
"As a clinic that sees all children regardless of a parent's ability to pay, this funding will enable us to provide medicine and obtain laboratory testing for the children we see that do not have health insurance. Funds will be used for some of our children with chronic conditions such as asthma to have the medication they need to manage their asthma and allow our providers to order laboratory tests to help with a child healthcare plan. This funding will help us meet the needs of our unfunded children," according to Sue Hill, Executive Director, for Lubbock Children's Health Clinic.
Lubbock Area Foundation is the community foundation for the entire South Plains and exists to help people who care about the Lubbock area to invest –at any level- in its future. The Foundation provides an easy and effective way for generous people to create permanent charitable endowments for the benefit of this area. Grants are awarded from endowments based on the interests of the donor or through an open competitive process that is responsive to the changing needs of the community.
