It’s Not Too Late to Support Better Access to Care

The North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) Foundation was among those charitable organizations taking part in yesterday’s #GivingTuesday global online initiative. We are pleased to report many of you stepped up to support our worthy cause of access to care for those North Carolinians in underserved areas of the state. Thank you!

While yesterday was an official day to give, the need as well as the opportunity to fill it are there every day. Please consider making your year-end gift to the NCMS Foundation so we can continue to help those patients who have trouble accessing the care you and your colleagues provide.

Through our Community Practitioner Program the Foundation matches primary care MDs, PAs and NPs with the communities that need their skill. These professionals face the challenging, yet hugely rewarding practice environment and lifestyle afforded by rural communities in exchange for help with their educational debt. The Foundation also assists them in developing financially sustainable practices that provide the highest quality care.

What your contribution means:

  • With support from people like you, the Foundation is currently assisting 41 providers over 5 years.
  • 41 PC providers seeing patients over 5 years = 167,341 more patients receiving care
  • 41 providers seeing 50 percent or more Medicaid and Uninsured Patients = $16,705,778 in free and reduced cost care

You, as a physician or PA, understand better than anyone what this means to an individual patient seeking care as well as the health of a community. Please GIVE TODAY!
