One of the scariest situations to be in is not have health care coverage
Some Relief for the Uninsured
In Charlotte North Carolina, there is a little bit of relief for some who do not have health care insurance thanks to Michael Jordan.
The Great Michael Jordan
When one thinks about Michael Jordan, perhaps it is when he was on the basketball courts. Or as his being the owner of the Charlotte Hornets. Now there will be others that think about him beyond his athletic abilities.
Two Uninsured Clinics Open
This great athlete obviously has a big heart. He has funded two clinics in Charlotte that will serve those who do not have health insurance.
The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinic
Now those who don’t have any health insurance or very little will be able to access both primary and preventative health care. These are top-notch clinics that include assistance for behavioral health as well as social support.
The clinic will be taking walk-ins as well as appointments.
The Emotions of Opening Day
Mr. Jordan donated $7 million to these Novant Health clinics in 2017. Opening day was full of emotion for him as he attended the opening as he shed tears at being able to give back to a community that he much appreciated.
The clinics are most impressive with twelve examination rooms as well as x-ray services right at the facility. There is also space for physical therapy. For mental support on staff is a full-time social worker.
Taking It A Step Further
The clinic will provide the first line care but will also make sure those in need are connected to additional resources when needed. The clinic is also offering employment opportunities as the workers in the clinic are all citizens of Charlotte and the area.
Mr. Jordan Says….
This is just the start of a battle of being able to touch as many people as we can.
Not Just One Act of Humanity
Some may think that Michael’s generosity only shines through this one big act of kindness. But, this athlete has a history of giving not just in the game of basketball but outside of it.
Michael Jackson Gave To Those Affected by 9/11.
Following the aftermath of 9/11, Michael donated his entire Wizards salary to the recovery efforts.
Michael Jordan and Jeffrey Harrison
Jeffrey, who has autism, has been classed as Michael’s biggest fan. When Michael heard about Jeffrey and his passion for the game and his love for Michael, this impressive athlete sent him some wonderful gifts, followed by a personal telephone call. Needless to say, Jeffrey could not have been happier.
Never Stops Giving
Just as Michael never stopped giving to his fans, he continues to give of himself whenever he can and has contributed to many charities.
A Lesson To Be Learned
Michael Jordan sets the perfect example of what a true athlete is. He is a champion both on and off the court, and it is no wonder he has and continues to have such a large fan base.
