$600,000 grant helps study health woes in Louisville, KY, neighborhood

Louisville Courier-Journal, October 10, 2008

Up to 1,600 residents in the Louisville, KY, neighborhood known as Rubbertown at risk of cardiovascular disease could get free screenings and preventive counseling from University of Louisville medical teams through a grant from the Anthem Foundation. The $600,000 grant also will pay for research into possible links between environmental pollutants and heart disease. The screenings will be a follow-up to 2007's free screening program in western and southwestern Louisville.
