Memphis health care facility gets more than $1.5M to train doctors, increase access to care


MEMPHIS, Tennessee — A health care facility in Memphis is getting more than $1.5 million in federal funds to help train more primary care doctors and increase access to health care services.

U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen announced the award to Christ Community Health Services this week.

The funding is available through the federal Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education grant program, which was created as part of President Barack Obama's health care law.

Christ Community Health Services was started in 1995.

Through strategically placed health care centers and outreach programs, the group provides high-quality health care and other services to thousands of patients, caregivers, students and families each year.
