The Grady Health Foundation is proud to announce the addition of seven new members to its board of directors. Representing Atlanta’s corporate, non-profit and philanthropic communities, these individuals will assist the Foundation in its efforts to raise both money and awareness for the region’s leading public health system.
The Atlanta-based Zeist Foundation has granted $5 million to the Grady Health Foundation that will help to underwrite critical upgrades and improvements to the hospital’s revitalized Women and Infants’ Center. “Our foundation is committed to serving at risk children and their families, starting even prior to birth,” said Marie Foster, Co-President of the Zeist Foundation. “Grady has long-served some of the most medically fragile infants in our community, and the improvements they plan for the Women and Infants’ Center will afford even more families a healthy start.”
