Hurricane Disaster Relief Application

 As hurricane recovery efforts continue in Bay County and other devastated communities, the FMA is mobilizing to help members in need.
 
Our Foundation for Healthy Floridians will be accepting Medical Disaster Relief grant applications until February 15, 2019 from physicians whose practices were severely damaged or forced to temporarily close because of Hurricane Michael.

All contributions to this special fund will go toward helping physicians rebuild and reopen their doors to patients.

Medical Disaster Relief Fund

Help physicians heal their communities

After Hurricane Michael devastated the Florida Panhandle, many medical practices remain severely damaged and unable to provide patient care. Others were closed for extended times or forced to relocate. You can help hurricane-stricken practices recover and reopen by supporting the Foundation for Healthy Floridians Medical Disaster Relief Fund.

The Medical Disaster Relief Fund was established in 2005 following Hurricane Katrina to:

  • Help physician practices recover after natural disasters
  • Support physicians so that they can provide urgently needed medical services in communities wrecked by natural disasters

Your contribution to the Medical Disaster Relief Fund will allow physician practices to rebuild, reopen and heal their communities. Thank you for your generous support.

The Foundation for Healthy Floridians, the FMA's philanthropic vehicle, is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All or part of your donation may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution.
