Sycuan Donates $5,000 to the Multicultural Health Foundation

February 26, 2021

This week, Sycuan Casino Resort proudly presented $5,000 to the Multicultural Health Foundation in support of their 2021 community efforts.

The Multicultural Health Foundation’s mission is to bring health justice and wellness to the multicultural communities of San Diego County by focusing resources on the most vulnerable populations with community-based wellness strategies, social-clinical interventions, and research that will lead to the elimination of racial and ethnic health disparities.

About the Multicultural Health Foundation

The Multicultural Health Foundation is born from the conviction that every member of the community should have equal opportunity to reach their full health potential, no matter where they live, their skin color or income level.

Two visionary African American physicians, Dr. Rodney G. Hood and Richard O. Butcher, began the Multicultural Medical Group in 1993, along with a handful of healthcare professionals. They saw firsthand the effects poverty and neglect had on their patients, mostly from communities of color, who were far sicker than residents in neighboring parts of San Diego County.
