Project gives safety net for healthcare that can’t wait in North Carolina
Using public and private money--in addition to donated time from medical specialists--Project Access has helped thousands of patients in North Carolina counties get better medical care. Now advocacy groups, elected officials and healthcare providers are pushing for a similar program in Durham, NC, where as many as 40,000 residents are uninsured. Project Access expects to get up to $400,000 from the Durham County commissioners, as well as grant money from other sources for the startup. The goal for the first year is to serve 2,400 patients.
