The ICB Receives $ 10,000 Grant
The Institute of Clinical Bioethics

The Institute received a $10,000 grant from Mercy Ministries for the Hispanic Health Promoter Program and in particular the Baby Box Program. It was given by the Sisters of Mercy Mid-Atlantic Community which supports the ministry of groups or organizations associated with the Sisters of Mercy. As the ICB began the Baby Box Program in the last spring, it needed a funding to continue and expand the program. Early this year (2017), Terri O'Doherty, the ICB's Assistant Director, was approached by Sister Ann O'Connell who encouraged her to apply for the Mercy Ministry Grant for the Baby Box Program. Sister Ann was willing to help by being the Institute's Sister/Associate for the grant submission. On June 28, 2017, Terri was informed that the Institute was awarded the extraordinary amount of $10,000 which Sister Ann described, "that is quite a surprise!" "It is a real coup that the Institute received this amount for the Health Promoter Program!" says the Institute's Director, Father Clark.
