Clinics get millions for health outreach
San Diego Union-Tribune

Eight local community clinics received a total of $2.7 million in grants Wednesday to hire workers who will help San Diego County residents understand their options when the state’s new health insurance exchange opens Oct. 1.

The grants were part of a $150 million funding package announced by Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, that pays for increased outreach at 1,159 health centers nationwide.
