The Physician Associates of MidMichigan Community Medical Foundation (PAMCMF) awarded MidMichigan Health Foundation a grant to fund the Vape Free Training Program.

The grant allows MidMichigan Health to provide educational sessions to local school districts to help combat the youth vaping epidemic. The grant will also support sending eight school district employees to the Vape Free Training Course. This course includes providing educational resources for at least four school districts for a total of eight educators within MidMichigan’s 23-county service area.
