GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)-In the last few months, our community has seen the health disparities with local neighbors, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people are facing challenges to receiving care, like inadequate health insurance, a lack of transportation and language barriers. Metro Health is working to remove these barriers by setting up testing sites through community partners and through the work of their Community Clinic which works year-round to serve 6,500 patients who may not otherwise be able to afford health care. Here’s a closer look at Metro Health, as our Heroes Among Us campaign continues. Click the video player above to watch.
