Aetna donates $140,000 to Morehouse’s free clinic 


The Morehouse School of Medicine’s student-run clinic, Health Equity for All Lives (H.E.A.L.),  was the recent recipient of a $140,000 community investment from Aetna Better Health of Georgia to promote health equity in Georgia. 

Aetna is a CVS Health company and its investment will support the clinic, which promotes ‘equal access’ to services, is the only student-run free clinic in Georgia that offers patients medical, dental, lab work, subsidized medications and specialty referral services. It has a goal of serving more than 1,000 underserved or underinsured patients this year. 

Dr. Christopher Ervin, director of Community-Based Initiatives at the Morehouse School of Medicine, said in a press release, “The clinic’s goal is to promote equal access to health care services across Atlanta and its surrounding rural communities by delivering no-cost health services to underserved populations.  “Low-income populations face greater barriers to affordable and quality health care, which is why our work is critical to the communities we serve.”

This generous donation to H.E.A.L. is part of Aetna’s ongoing effort to support underserved populations in Georgia. This year, the company has donated more than $2 million to local, community-based organizations across the state. Their goal is to support underserved populations in Georgia which will help address the care needs of people in both urban and rural communities to help ensure all Georgians have access to holistic, quality care.
