LOWLINC Receives McMurtry Award from Mary Washington Hospital Foundation


On December 17, LOWLINC received a $5,000 Lawrence and Martha McMurtry Award for Excellence and Innovation in Community Health and Wellness. The Mary Washington Hospital Foundation gives two awards annually, one to an individual and the other to a nonprofit organization, in order to “recognize, encourage, and stimulate efforts to increase access, improve quality, and foster innovation in providing health and wellness services for the ‘medically underserved’ in the region served by Mary Washington Hospital.”  Mary Washington Healthcare considers seniors to be a medically underserved population. 


The LOWLINC Board plans to dedicate the award for health and wellness initiatives that benefit seniors at LOW. LOWLINC currently works to improve access to health and wellness services through transportation, health literacy and education, socialization to diminish isolation, and exercise and nutrition programs.


We especially thank all our volunteers who have made it possible for LOWLINC to receive this important recognition.
