San Diego County Medical Society Foundation Rebrands

San Diego County Medical Society Foundation has rebranded, changing its name to Champions for Health.

The physician referral nonprofit unveiled the name and its new logo at the Health Heroes award ceremony after the Annual Aces for Health Golf and Tennis Tournament at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club. This event recognized individuals and agencies that brought the nonprofit’s mission to life.

The foundation focuses on providing health care access, improving health education and prevention and supporting the future of medicine. San Diego County Medical Society Foundation was founded in 2004 to address the health care needs of low-income or uninsured San Diego County residents.

Since 2008, with its flagship program, Project Access San Diego, the nonprofit has served over 4,500 patients, facilitated 10,400 specialty medical appointments and over 1,000 surgeries and procedures, a total of over $10.8 million in pro bono care, according to a release from the foundation.

The San Diego County Medical Society Foundation began its rebrand in late 2015 to highlight the role of the physician in community health.

“Champions for Health not only exemplifies all our partners, but will also help the organization be more recognizable in the general community,” said Barbara Mandel, executive director at the foundation. “We’re looking forward to having a name that highlights our health heroes and means more in the public eye.”
