Grand View Health affiliated physicians were recognized for their work and care in the community at the Respecting Choices & Honoring Our Doctors event hosted by the Bucks County Health Improvement Partnership (BCHIP) on March 15, 2016.
Sandra Harris Corrado, MD, a Grand View Hospitalist, was acknowledged for her work with the Volunteer Doctors Care-Upper Bucks Clinic (UBC). In 2007, she was a leader in starting a free clinic for residents of Upper Bucks County who were facing financial and healthcare challenges, and in 2009 accepted the additional responsibilities of Medical Director of the clinic. UBC closed its doors in May 2015, but Dr. Corrado continues to personally assist patients who cannot afford their prescribed medications. The clinic’s vision of providing care for our neighbors in need would not have been possible without her dedication and determination.
Priscila Benner, MD, was also acknowledged for her vision in creating the Mujeres Amigas (Women Friends) Miles Apart Project, a non-profit organization focusing on providing families living at risk of early death proper nutrition. The MAMA Project developed from Dr. Benner’s missionary trips to Honduras and has grown significantly from its inception in 1986, providing health, education, food supplements and rescue relief. Her passion for the MAMA Project is evident in her lifelong humanitarian work.
Grand View congratulates Dr. Corrado and Dr. Benner for this great recognition!
