USDA Grant Expands Healthcare on Wheels in Demopolis


By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  Tombigbee Healthcare Authority in Demopolis gets a $900,000 dollar grant to help make healthcare more accessible to people who live in rural communities.

The grant will help expand mobile healthcare services in six west Alabama counties. The money will be used to provide training for nurses who support the mobile unit. The grant was awarded by USDA Rural Development.

"It's just a God-send you know for the community and people like me who don't have transportation," said Forkland resident Tracie Powell.

Mobile healthcare services are provided in Choctaw, Greene, Hale, Sumter, Wilcox and Marengo counties.
