Assemblyman Jay Obernolte has recognized the Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation as the 2018 Nonprofit of the Year for the 33rd Assembly District.
The Foundation that has donated millions of dollars to various charities since it was founded in 1986 was honored at a Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation Scholarship dinner held last week in Victorville.
“The Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation is a local nonprofit that has done a tremendous job improving access to health care to underserved patients throughout our region,” Obernolte said. “They are also committed to helping students prepare for careers in medical fields as well as providing college scholarships to students who achieve academic excellence.”
The assemblyman commended the Foundation for providing medical services to the local communities and for all of their “good work” both in his district and around the world.
Contributions from the Foundation have included academic scholarships for students in the High Desert who are enrolled in medical-related degree programs.
At the national level, the Foundation assists patients unable to afford treatment by funding free clinics and organizations supporting preventative care. Globally, they donate equipment to clinics located in poverty-stricken regions around the world.
The Foundation also funds clean water initiatives, childhood vaccinations programs, educational grants and clinics that treat blindness and pediatric congenital heart defects.
Dr. Reddy made a commitment of $40 million in 2014 to found the University of Science and Medicine, a nonprofit MD school located in San Bernardino.
Through Prime Healthcare Services facilities and many foundation donations, Dr. Reddy and the Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation strive to meet the health care needs of the community, Obernolte said.
