$10,000 Goal

Sierra Community Medical Foundation (SCMF) was created in light of a need for better care for our community.  SCMF primarily focuses on Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs and the relationship to drug use in our community as well as improving the delivery of care to patients through our Physician Wellness Program. Physicians must be well in order for them to provide inclusive, comprehensive care.  SCMF has a Prescription Drug Safety Coalition with the primary goal of addressing the impact of opioid and fentanyl use in our community and schools.  All of our programs are closely intertwined through the common goal of improving the health of our community and quality of life.  

What makes SCMF unique to our community?  We provide and promote programs to assist in public health crises and we collaborate across populations within our communities. 


Mission

Sierra Community Medical Foundation was created in light of a need for better care for our community. Founded out of the Placer-Nevada County Medical Society, SCMF is driven by the passion of our community's physicians who want to address the gaps in medical services that people face. Prior to SCMF's existence, an opioid coalition was established for Placer and Nevada Counties to counter the persistent epidemic.

Needs

SCMF has identified unrestricted funding as a main priority. Funds will be directed towards most critical areas of need, such as:

Adverse Childhood Experiences/Social Determinants of Health

Opioid/Fentanyl Safety Coalition
