UnitedHealthcare Awards $1.1 Million to Northeast Ohio Nonprofits

The grants are part of the company's health empowerment initiative

UnitedHealthcare is giving $1.1 million in grants to four Northeast Ohio nonprofits to improve access to health care, according to a news release.

The grants are part of UnitedHealthcare’s Empowering Health initiative, which aims to address the social determinants of health, things like access to healthy food, transportation and housing.

“For many people, living a healthy lifestyle goes beyond a visit to their doctor and involves a full range of social factors,” Tracy Davidson, vice president of quality and population health strategy for UnitedHealthcare Community and State, said in a prepared statement. “It’s difficult for people to improve their health if they can’t feed their families, lack access to reliable transportation or feel isolated.”
