A recent CNN article discussed the latest philanthropic effort by retired NBA star Michael Jordan. According to the article, the former Bull is donating $10 million to open two new medical clinics in his hometown of WIlmington, North Carolina. Both clinics are expected to open in 2022, and will provide healthcare to uninsured or underinsured citizens of Hanover County.

This is Jordan’s second local healthcare donation; in 2017 he pledged $7 million to open two clinics in Charlotte. "Everyone should have access to quality health care, no matter where they live, or whether or not they have insurance." Jordan said in a statement. "Wilmington holds a special place in my heart and it's truly gratifying to be able to give back to the community that supported me throughout my life."
