About the Frymoyer Community Health Resource Center

As a patient, Nan Frymoyer realized the power and value of education to healing and recovery. Her vision and mission was to make this kind of information easily available to everyone in need and most particularly to patients and their families. As a result of the collaborative efforts of many people, the Frymoyer Community Health Resource Center was created to fulfill her vision.

Please read our blog article, "Remembering Nan Frymoyer, A Tireless Advocate for Patient Education" for more information about her generous gift.
