GroundGame.Health was created by some of the most innovative and experienced healthcare leaders in America to smash barriers in the healthcare system so resources can get from “up there” (Managed Care Organizations and Government Agencies) down to ground level Community Based Organizations where they can help the most people.
So it was a natural fit for GroundGame.Health to become a premier sponsor of the USAging ‘Answers on Aging’ Annual Conference and Tradeshow, the country’s largest gathering of local leaders in aging. Each year, over 1000 professionals come together with government experts, policymakers, business leaders, and other Aging Network practitioners and partners to share knowledge, insights and new directions in the field of aging.
Susan Rawlings Molina, CEO of GroundGame says “GroundGame Health’s mission is to help close the health equity gap across the nation through local engagement, and what better way to advocate for this goal than to join with experts and leaders and work together to make a difference to those who most need it. We are delighted to be a part of this important journey and look forward to a successful collaboration.”
At the Conference, GroundGame.Health did more than bring their message… they brought their mission to life by donating thousands of dollars to 4 organizations selected from the attendees. And these dollars are already having an impact at ground level. “Thank you so much for the $2500 for our agency! We used it to buy fans for clients because the Alabama heat is tough!! With GroundGame.Health’s donation and some local dollars, we were able to purchase enough fans to help people without air conditioning and have some left over for future clients,” said Kelli Kimbrell, Director of the Area Agency on Aging, West Alabama Regional Commission.
“It’s great to see our participation in a conference that helps so many people come to life at ground level,” said Sri Akula, President of GroundGame.Health.
