This summer, we supported 100 Maryland nonprofit organizations with funding through our CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act Emergency Relief Grants Fund. One of our grantees was The Bayside History Museum in Calvert County. We spoke to Grace Mary Brady, the museum’s Founder and President, about the museum and the positive impact of the grant, used to pay teen employees. (Image from 2019.)

Works in the journal come from patients, healthcare workers, caregivers, and more. She wrote here about the power of stories in healthcare.
