UnitedHealthcare handed over $1 million in grants to seven Memphis-area nonprofit organizations Monday as part of its Empowering Health program. The grants support critical needs in Memphis and Shelby County, including dental care, access to fresh and healthy food, addressing senior hunger and social isolation and promoting youth health, education and physical activity. “Living a healthy life is about more than just a regular visit to the doctor’s office,” said Keith Payet, CEO of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Tennessee. “Through programs like Empowering Health, we are introducing innovative ways to integrate clinical and social services and make a real impact on people’s health and well-being, especially those who are uninsured or underserved.
