customers

LANSING, Mich., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Grand Rapids-based retailer Meijer received the Legacy of Leadership award in recognition of its free antibiotic and free pre-natal vitamin programs. The award was presented during the 29th Annual Distinguished Service Awards luncheon of Michigan Primary Care Association (MPCA), the nonprofit membership organization that represents Community Health Centers and other community-based providers in Michigan.

"The Michigan Primary Care Association Legacy of Leadership Award annually recognizes the performance of exemplary leadership to benefit Michigan Community Health Center patients, many of whom are low-income and/or uninsured," said Kim Sibilsky, Executive Director, MPCA. "Just as health care at Michigan Community Health Centers is available to everyone regardless of ability to pay or insurance status, so are antibiotic and pre-natal vitamin prescriptions through Meijer. MPCA and our 32 member Health Centers applaud the company's ground-breaking initiatives to help improve the health of Michigan residents."
