Service in Action

Penn Medicine CAREs Grant

Penn Medicine faculty, staff and students donate their time to provide countless hours of work to improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve. To help with these efforts, the Penn Medicine CAREs Grant offers monetary support to these individuals and programs each year. These CAREs Grant recipients exemplify the values of Penn Medicine and our commitment to reaching out well beyond the doors of our institution.
