HACKENSACK, N.J. -- Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative (BVMI) received a $30,000 grant from the CVS Health Foundation on Tuesday, April 5.

The $30,000 grant has been awarded as part of the CVS Health Foundation’s commitment to address the need for more accessible, coordinated health care in local communities, and will help BVMI support the Diabetes Care and Education Program.

“The grant we’re receiving from the CVS Health Foundation will help us in our continued effort to reduce overall health care costs and improve patient care outcomes for those in our local community,” Amanda Missey, BVMI President & CEO said in a statement. “We are honored to receive this grant which will help ensure that we can support patients in Bergen County who are looking for accessible, neighborhood health care options.”

The free clinic grants are part of the CVS Health Foundation’s $5 million, multi-year commitment to supporting community health and expanding access to quality health care nationwide through partnerships with the National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics and the National Association of Community Health Centers.
