Michael Jordan Opens Clinic For low-income Community
18 Oct, 2019
Underprivileged members of the Charlotte community are receiving two new medical clinics, and they have Michael Jordan to thank.
The Charlotte Hornets owner unveiled the first of the two health-care centers at the grand opening of the Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic on Thursday. Jordan became visibly emotional during his speech.
“This is a very emotional thing for me to be able to give back to a community that has supported me over the years,” the six-time NBA champion said while tears streamed down his cheeks.
Jordan announced the $7 million gift, which will provide access to primary and preventive care to individuals, including the uninsured, in 2017. The center is located in a lower-income section of the city.
“This is just the start of a battle of being able to touch as many people as we can,” Jordan said.
