Grant Awarded - Addressing the Health & Social Needs of Vulnerable Populations
Maryland Community Health Resources Commission Grant “Addressing the Health & Social Needs of Vulnerable Populations”
Stone Run Family Medicine (Cecil & Surrounding Counties of Maryland). The program will support the implementation of the "Open Table" concept through two clinic practices, Stone Run and Clinica (a charitable clinic that specializes in serving Spanish-speaking residents with financial and language barriers). Open Table is a non-profit training organization that specializes in developing and directing the "social and relational assets of community-based volunteers to support vulnerable families and residents with complex needs." The program goal is to leverage community and social and relational networks to provide the support that transcends traditional safety net programs and uses a clinical process support system (CHADIS) to identify Social Determinants of Health and communicate with the Open Table group as well as other local professional and agency resources.
