West Virginia: Charleston Area Medical Center Institute Gets Renewed Grant for HIV Patients
June 4, 2003
The Charleston Area Medical Center Health Education and Research Institute received a $460,000 federal grant renewal to care for HIV patients in 16 southern West Virginia counties through next March. The renewal of the Ryan White Title III grant will pay to support early intervention and primary care for HIV-infected patients, as well as to hire a part-time employee to assist with community outreach. The original grant of $690,000 -- the largest ever received by the CAMC Institute -- was received in the fall of 2001 and was the first Ryan White grant awarded in West Virginia.Adapted from:
