Michael Jordan opens medical clinic in North Carolina

Basketball legend Michael Jordan unveiled the first of two medical clinics funded by him and his family in Charlotte, N.C., on Oct. 17, according to The Charlotte Observer.

Mr. Jordan donated $7 million to Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Novant Health in 2017 to build the two clinics. The clinics, named in Mr. Jordan's honor, are expected to serve 35,000 underprivileged members of the community over five years. The centers will offer primary and behavioral health services as well as access to oral health practitioners, social workers and physical therapy. 

At the grand opening of the first clinic Oct. 17, Mr. Jordan said the donation is a way to make a difference in the Charlotte community that has supported him throughout his life. 

"I can never repay what you have given to me. But this is a start," he said, according to The Charlotte Observer
