Cone Health Receives Grant to Help Provide Dental Care

The Cone Health Congregational Nurse Program has received a $3,000 CVS Caremark Community Grant to help provide dental care to those in need in our community. The grant will go to the 2011 North Carolina Missions of Mercy dental clinic. The clinic, serving those 200% or below federal poverty guidelines, is Nov. 11 and 12 at the Greensboro Coliseum.

“The Moses Cone Congregational Nurse Program is grateful to the CVS Caremark Community Grants program for supporting the 2011 Greensboro Missions of Mercy Dental Clinic,” says Lelia Moore, Congregational Nurse Coordinator. “Affordable dental care is a huge unmet need in our community, region and state. This is a way for Cone Health to help meet the medical needs of our community.”

“CVS Caremark Community Grants are an effective way for us to contribute to the success of communities where we do business,” said Jennifer Veilleux, Director of CVS Caremark Corporation. “We are proud to support the work that the Cone Health Congregational Nurse Program does in the community.”

The Congregational Nurse Program received the grant through the CVS Caremark Community Grants 2008 grant application process. Grants were awarded to organizations sharing a common interest with CVS Caremark of supporting programs for the uninsured, which help to make health services affordable and easy to access.

The Missions of Mercy Dental Clinic is a program of the NC Dental Society. This marks the third year that the Congregational Nurse Program has worked with the Society to bring this volunteer led program to Greensboro.
