Grants

Jordan Smith, assistant professor and co-curricular coordinator in High Point University’s Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy, recently secured a grant for the Community Clinic of High Point to administer free influenza vaccines to patients for the 2020-21 flu season.

The $10,000 grant was administered by the Guilford CARES Nonprofit Assistance Grant Program, which was put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Smith applied for the grant when he learned it would supply aid to organizations that care for the most vulnerable members of the community.

This grant will allow the Community Clinic of High Point to vaccinate as many as 400 patients against influenza this year. It will also allow students and faculty to provide educational sessions and educational materials for patients to take home. These educational materials will provide information to Community Clinic patients on how to best prevent viral infections, including COVID-19, how to identify symptoms associated with these infections, and how to take care of themselves and their families should they become ill.
