Last year, we were exited to announce the expansion of our pharmacy services into Hopewell and the Tri-Cities area. This was made possible through Susie’s Fund for Medication Assistance which, is funded by the John Randolph Foundation’s Ursula M. Gibbs Medication Endowment.
This bequest was made by Ursula M. Gibbs in honor of her friend and caretaker Susie Robinson Jones.
Mrs. Gibbs was so horrified to learn that Susie had fallen ill due to lack of access to affordable medication, that she decided to help others in the same position.
Over the past year, Medication Access Caseworkers Myra Garner and Tori Pierce have worked in Hopewell distributing 1,418 prescriptions to 124 patients in Hopewell and the surrounding area. These prescriptions include life-saving drugs for conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and more.
