LWDI Intern Spotlight: Grace Helps American Heart Association Win Grant for Underserved Clinics in Her Area!

While Grace was an intern with the American Heart Association, she collected data and created a Community Needs Assessment for her area. The Community needs assessment helped the American Heart Association write a grant proposal for race equity funding for low income low food access households. Grace was recently notified by her AHA preceptor that the grant proposal was accepted and they received $15,000 for underserved clinics to get BP and nutrition info in the hands that need it! Grace’s hard work as an intern helped make this happen and we are so proud of her! 

Here is what Grace had to say about her amazing accomplisment:

“I am overwhelmed with joy, and super excited to be a part of something bigger than myself.”

Grace, LWDI Intern
