Cohen: Le Bonheur to Receive $500K for AIDS Funding
MEMPHIS, TN – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today announced Le Bonheur Community Health and Well-Being will receive $500,000 in new federal funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for the Ryan White Title IV Women, Infants, Children, Youth and Affected Family Members AIDS Healthcare project.
“Le Bonheur provides Memphis and Shelby County with top quality health care,” said Congressman Cohen. “These new federal funds will help the hospital deliver critical services to patients living with HIV and AIDS.
