GlaxoSmithKline and The Philadelphia Foundation are issuing a call for applications for the 2017 GSK IMPACT Awards.

This annual awards program recognizes local nonprofit organizations that are addressing everyday health barriers in communities across the five-county region.

“At GSK, we know that health is about so much more than going to the doctor,” said Becki Lynch, Manager of U.S. Community Partnerships at GSK. “That’s why we recognize and reward local nonprofit organizations that are helping our neighbors access healthy foods and safe places to play and exercise, find high-quality jobs and education, and strengthen their family and social supports.

“Because we know that these things make Greater Philadelphia a healthy place.”

The GSK IMPACT Awards honor effective nonprofit organizations that are working hand-in-hand with the community to make neighborhoods healthier.

“Greater Philadelphia nonprofits enhance the health of community residents by providing them with vital resources, and we are proud to partner with GSK on administering the GSK IMPACT Awards,” said Pedro A. Ramos, President and CEO of The Philadelphia Foundation.
