Reducing Risks for Children and Adults

{:alt=>"Doctors Walid Gellad, Julie Donohue, and Eric Hulsey of University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Pharmaceutical Policy and Prescribing seek to develop a predictive model that, if successful, can be used by local health and human service agencies to target services and interventions for at-risk populations."}

In 2018, the Foundation made 57 grants totaling more than $26,000,000 to human service initiatives. Six million dollars focused on community health issues, including the opioid epidemic and infant mortality. Other funded initiatives supported basic human needs, education and work readiness programs, residential improvements for low-income and elderly residents, and programs and services that support family stability, children, and young people.
