To pursue our mission of enhancing the health of our county’s citizens, we support other nonprofit organizations.  We do this by awarding grants to local organizations for specific programs, which promote the health and well-being of our citizens.  As representatives of the physicians of El Paso County and as a non-denominational organization, we do not support any particular religion, denomination, affinity group, or belief system to the exclusion of others.  We will support programs that enhance the general health and well-being of people of our community that do not discriminate against anyone.
