Across the country, states struggle with the challenge of providing health-care access and prescription drugs to their citizens who can’t afford it. In Kentucky, one solution to the problem can be found in Health Kentucky, a nonprofit organization that has provided free prescription drugs to more than 350,000 patients since its inception in 1984.
Eligible patients receive free dental care and medications through a statewide network of volunteer pharmaceutical companies, pharmacies, dentists. These individuals experience an improved quality of life — and peace of mind— when they can receive needed health care.
To the many volunteers in the medical community who contribute their time and resources, and to the many individuals and corporations who contribute funding to this important cause, Health Kentucky thanks you! Please consider giving time to help those in your community.
