Community health centers across Arizona are on the front lines of the COVIC-19 pandemic to provide care for underserved and uninsured populations. To help support these patients, Delta Dental of Arizona, through its foundation, is donating $500,000 to the 23 federally qualified health centers across the state.
“Delta Dental of Arizona has a long history of supporting Arizona communities through its foundation, particularly the underserved and underinsured. We see community health centers as a critical link to people in need and we have partnered with many dental clinics within the FQHC system. As health-care partners, we can assist with unrestricted funds to help alleviate the burden of the pandemic on these clinics,” says Allan Allford, CEO of Delta Dental of Arizona and chair of the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation.
For the first time in its history, Delta Dental donated a gift of this magnitude for medical purposes.
