Tim provided us a key review on the work the non-profit he runs, the United Family Health Alliance (formerly known as the Assyrian Family Health Alliance) for 2019, some of the programs they conducted, as well as the focus for the new year.

The United Family Health Alliance provides copay assistance, healthcare education, as well as charitable contributions to organizations that parallel their vision, which is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle.

The non-profit raises money through a lab, cohabited by Dirmanna Pharmacy in Skokie.  All proceeds from the lab help support their copay assistance program, which in 2019 assisted 50 patients at Dirmanna pharmacy to be able to afford the high cost of their medications.

The Lab assisted over 190 people gain access to their vital information, many of which did not have access to affordable care. 

In 2019, the UFHA was able to hold 3 educational seminars, with ranging healthcare topics, from diabetes complication prevention, to transplant awareness.  They were also able to help sponsor a few teams for a local sports league which helps promote a healthy and active lifestyle for youth and young adults.

In 2020, their focus will be to provide more healthcare education seminars, tailored specifically through trauma informed care, as well as transplant awareness.

The UFHA accepts donations, and as a 501(c)(3) organization, will be able to provide any necessary information for your tax benefits.
