Foundation invests more than $1.8 million to address community needs
 
Tufts Health Plan Foundation announced today community investments of more than $1.8 million. Focused on systems and best practices, these grants reflect the Foundation's commitment to supporting innovative approaches to improving health and wellness in diverse communities.
 
"These initiatives are inclusive, led by community, and represent true cross-sector collaboration. By leveraging Foundation resources, they can implement promising practices and proven strategies--and accelerate the pace of progress," said Nora Moreno Cargie, president of the Tufts Health Plan Foundation and vice president, corporate citizenship for Tufts Health Plan.
 
The new investments align with the Foundation's support for age-friendly communities. The initiatives tackle a range of issues--from access to health care and social isolation of older adults to managing chronic diseases and elder abuse.
