Date:8/25/2014

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company – together with Direct Relief and the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) – has announced the winners of the 2014 "Innovations in Care" awards to seven community health centers as part of the BD Helping Build Healthy CommunitiesSM initiative. The announcement was made at the 2014 National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) Community Health Institute and EXPO held in San Diego, CA.

BD Helping Build Healthy Communities is a four-year initiative to expand access and improve care for underserved and vulnerable populations in the U.S. The initiative, first announced in 2012 with a founding pledge at the Clinton Health Matters Initiative, includes a BD commitment of approximately $5 million in cash and product to clinics and community health centers (CHCs) across the US. The initiative has two components, including:

  1. A pledge to donate at least 20 million insulin needles and syringes to community health centers across the country to support diabetes care management for uninsured and under-insured Americans. To date, BD has donated 9.1 million syringes to community health centers.
  2. Innovation in Care awards of up $100,000 to CHCs that are addressing the prevention and treatment of diseases that disproportionately affect vulnerable populations. Awards are based on CHC proposals for innovative approaches to diabetes, cervical cancer and HIV prevention and management.  BD has a long history of developing tools to help diagnose and manage these conditions and is committed to improving care for those who lack access.  Decisions on innovation award winners are guided by a panel
