WCMS seeks $50,000 in donations to fund its foundation’s charitable programs

Press release

From the Western Carolina Medical Society

The WCMS Annual Campaign has raised over $21,000 for the WCMS Foundation’s charitable programs. Will you help us reach our $50,000 goal? Donate now.

The importance of supporting healthcare in our community cannot be underestimated, especially for those whose lives our physicians touch and save. Your generous gift to the WCMS Foundation Annual Campaign will ensure that our Western Carolina Medical Society Foundation will continue to increase charitable services and programs to patients, their families and our community, with the highest quality level of care.

Our community’s needs during these uncertain times of healthcare changes include:

Project Access® in Buncombe County- Can we continue to offer free health care in 2013 in order to serve those in greatest need?

WCMS Interpreter Network- Can we help more of our low-income, limited English proficient community in WNC communicate with their providers?

Charles Blair Health Parity Scholarship Fund- Can we grow the scholarship fund for minorities who want to go to medical school?

Moving Healthcare Upstream- Can we bring physicians, businesses, and community members together to connect patients to wellness, prevention and health promotion offerings?

We are actively involved participants in our community, helping the region to deliver healthcare services now and into the future. Won’t you join us to support these endeavors?
