$2.5 Million Federal Grant Awarded!

A five-year, $2.5 million federal grant will create a statewide public health training center led by the Eastern Virginia Medical School / Old Dominion University Graduate Program in Public Health.

The grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration will fund the Commonwealth Public Health Training Center. It's a partnership of the state's graduate programs in public health, the state health department, the Virginia Public Health Association and family medicine residency programs.

The new center will train Virginia Department of Health employees, educate family-medicine residents about public health issues, strengthen the pipeline for the future public-health workforce and host statewide training events.
