BENEFITING: ALLIANCE MEDICAL GROUP INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
What am I running for?
Chase for Chase [(Clinic)] was created to raise $1000 to help the patients in financial hardship at the Henry S. Chase Outpatient Center - or "Chase Clinic" as it is fondly known to our patients and staff. The funds raised will be donated to patients who cannot afford to pay for their essential medications in the form of pharmacy gift cards.
Why you should help our patients
The patients at Chase Clinic are pragmatic and resilient group of remarkable individuals who have faced untold hardships and still care enough about their health to seek preventative health care at our clinic. These patients are the unfortuate victims of a healthcare system that penalizes the working class leaving them underinsured and unable to pay the copays on the medications they need to control their blood pressure, manage their diabetes or help with their depression.
Who we are
The Henry S. Chase Outpatient Center is a partly resident-driven clinic located in the heart of Waterbury, Connecticut. I work as a resident physician in that practice. The practice sees greater than 20,000 visits per year, providing care for a large portion of the medically underserved citizens of Waterbury, Connecticut.
What you can do?
Please make a donation to support this cause - from as little as $10 - which will pay for a 90 day supply of a blood pressure medication to $200 which will cover a month's supply of insulin for a diabetic.
*THANK YOU FOR BEING A STAR*
