RALEIGH, NC – We are pleased to announce that we are one of several community health centers in the country to receive funding from the FCC that will help us provide telehealth services during the COVID-19 pandemic. From our curbside pharmacy to our virtual care, we’ll be able to continue providing quality primary healthcare during the pandemic.

We were awarded $690,671 to fund an integrated telemedicine system, remote monitoring devices, and networking equipment to provide COVID-19 testing, drive-up and curbside pharmacy services, and remote monitoring to address the risk factors that make vulnerable patients more susceptible to COVID-19.

“I find the work rewarding since we work to fill a void, to provide coverage where otherwise many patients could not receive the medical care needed.”
