“We have provided support for tens of thousands of health care providers, and have impacted millions of patients,” Storm said. “I like to say simply put, we are working behind the scenes to bring people and information together to improve health.”

The nonprofit plans to fund eight to 15 grants in amounts up to $20,000 in areas where its staff collaborates with community coalitions, healthcare facilities and patients to address provider care, grassroots efforts, and education and research.
