SECU Foundation awarded the North Carolina Healthcare Foundation a $2.5 million grant to aid in statewide relief and recovery efforts from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Major areas of support deemed critical in response to COVID-19 and provided through this grant include: collaboration with North Carolina Area Healthcare Education Centers to provide online training and medical coaching for staff who deliver COVID-19 care outside an area of specialty; provisions such as personal protective equipment (PPE), mental health resilience programs, childcare, and expanded telehealth services for acute healthcare employees.
