Celebrating Those Who CARE

Penn-CAREs-1Improving the lives and health of underserved communities throughout the Philadelphia area is among Penn Medicine’s highest priorities. Each year Pennsylvania Hospital physicians, faculty, and staff volunteer their time and talents to the community Penn Medicine calls home through the Penn Medicine CAREs program. Penn Medicine CAREs was established to offer institutional support to these individuals and programs in the form of grants — awarded quarterly — that can be used to purchase supplies and other resources needed to perform this important work in the community. Since its inception in 2012, Penn Medicine CAREs has awarded more than $270,000 to more than 220 worthwhile programs.
