Mark Twain Medical Center in San Andreas is awarding grants to organizations that want to improve the health of people living in Calaveras County.
Project proposals must address unmet health needs in the rural county, which include childhood obesity, congestive heart failure and diabetes prevention.
Nicki Stevens, manager of marketing and business development for the center, says access to health care has been a problem for the county located in the foothills.
"Multiple agencies are facing different challenges and when we collaborate together we make great changes that benefit our health and communities,” she says.
The center will be awarding $31,000 in grants.
Proposals can be submitted until July 29.
