Mobile County Doctor Receives Genius Grant
(2008-09-23)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - A south Alabama doctor is among 25 fellows who will receive $500,000 over the next five years from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

51-year-old Regina Benjamin, a rural family physician in Bayou La Batre, delivers medical care to rural and underserved areas of Alabama.

Benjamin said the money will help rebuild her rural health clinic which serves 4,400 patients. It was rebuilt by volunteers after being destroyed by Katrina, only to burn down months later.
