FMU Partners with Welvista

Francis Marion is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Welvista, a non-profit pharmaceutical company based in Columba, SC. FMU is the first institution in the state to partner with Welvista which will offer free pharmaceuticals to eligible students who are South Carolina residents without health insurance. FMU’s Student Government Association is proud to be at the forefront of this initiative that will bring services to uninsured students. 

“I’ve had the privilege to work with Welvista over the years. It is a compassionate non-profit, which is widely respected for healthcare outreach – especially those supporting underserved populations,” said FMU President Fred Carter. “I’m delighted that FMU will its first collegiate partner for pharmaceutical services. A sizable number of our students will benefit from this collaboration.”
