Leon Levine Foundation Awarded NC MedAssist With $175,000 Grant
NC MedAssist received a grant of $175,000 Grant for helping uninsured neighbors in North Carolina. Many North Carolina residents are taking life-saving medications, and NC MedAssist offers these medications at no cost. The Leon Levine Foundation awarded NC MedAssist with the grant to continue providing critical, life-saving medication to vulnerable North Carolina residents. We love the CEO, Brenda Vass at NC MedAssist because she educates us about the health disparities we’re facing. Brenda Vass said, “We are grateful for our ongoing partnership with The Leon Levine Foundation. Their generosity helps us advance health equity, serving uninsured NC residents with low resources who are living with chronic illnesses like diabetes, heart disease, and asthma. We honor and appreciate the Levine legacy.”
