Dr. Rodriguez Joins Grace StaffMaria E. Rodriguez, M.D. is the newest addition to the Grace Medical Home staff.  Born in Cuba, she moved to the United States in 1997, and comes to Grace with 24 years of clinical experience.  Most recently, she was a Family Medicine Physician at Lawndale Christian Health Center in Chicago.  “I feel very honored and blessed to be a part of Grace— a ministry reflecting the love of Christ through health care for the underserved,” Rodriguez said.  Having another full-time primary care physician allows Grace to expand capacity and serve more patients in need.  (To date Grace has enrolled 2,000 patients.)   Dr. Rodriguez’s experience, skills and compassion to serve is an answer to many prayers.  She comments, “I have always known that all that I am and all that I have achieved is possible because God has been by my side.”
 Unique Temporary Opportunity for Donors in "Fiscal Cliff" Law Expires End of This Month By Michael E. Batts, President & Managing Principal
Batts, Morrison, Wales & Lee

The so-called “fiscal cliff” law just passed by Congress and signed by President Obama, formally known as the “American Taxpayer Relief Act” (the Act), includes a little-publicized provision providing a very short window of opportunity for eligible taxpayers to make direct charitable distributions from their IRAs in January of 2013 and count them as made on December 31, 2012.  The Act also contains a relief provision for eligible taxpayers who took distributions from their IRAs in December of 2012 (not knowing that the direct charitable IRA distribution exclusion would be retroactively renewed).  The Act allows those taxpayers to exclude those distributions from their taxable income (within the prescribed limits) so long as they transfer the distributed funds to a qualified charity by the end of January 2013.  LEARN MORE
