Riverside Health Clinic receives grant

Riverside Health Clinic was the recipient of a $10,000 grant Tuesday.

Officials from the Three Rivers-based clinic said patients who require chronic-disease management for ailments such as diabetes, asthma and hypertension, will benefit the most from the gift presented by the Monsanto Fund.

Cindy Kujacznski, executive director of the Riverside Health Clinic, said the majority of the donation will go toward the purchase of insulin, insulin supplies and services from a regularly assigned physician.

Monsanto’s Constantine site manager Barry Meyer and its operations manager Josh Onken presented a ceremonial check to Kujacznski outside the clinic during Tuesday’s media event.

The 11-year-old clinic, which operates at Riverside Church and is open every Tuesday, serves about 1,400 people annually. Most of its clients are either without insurance, or don’t qualify for Medicaid or any other type of general assistance.

It offers a medical-distribution service to about 30 people in Sturgis once a month.
