Mississippi Wellness and Resource Series Sponsored by UnitedHealthcare
UnitedHealthcare, a UnitedHealth Group Empowering Health initiative, has awarded grants to six community-based organizations in Mississippi to expand access to care and address the social determinants of health for uninsured individuals and underserved communities. The ADA Mississippi Wellness and Resource series was selected to target low-income individuals and families for diabetes prevention and education with access to on-demand virtual programming, an at-home wellness kit, and connections to free or low-cost resources and services.
