CENTER FOR RURAL HEALTH PRACTICE RECEIVES $175,000 GRANT TO TRAIN PUBLIC HEALTH WORKERS

BRADFORD, Pa. – The Center for Rural Health Practice at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford has received a $175,000 grant to train public health employees in nine counties.

The grant will be paid over five years to train the public health workforce across the north central portion of the state -- including school nurses, county health department staff and state health improvement partners on topics of public health and safety.

“Issues that could affect the health of many individuals within our target counties will be identified, prioritized and addressed from a prevention and intervention perspective through education, said Dr. Youmasu Siewe, director of the Center for Rural Health Practice.

The grant will be used to hire a part-time staff member to coordinate the program and train workers, and also support a paid student worker.

The coordinator will be trained before beginning to train workers in the target counties of McKean, Warren, Potter, Forest, Elk, Cameron, Clarion, Jefferson and Clearfield.

The competitive grant is funded by the Health Research Service Administration, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services, to support the Pennsylvania Public Health Training Center. The health training center is managed through collaboration between the Graduate School of Public Health in Pittsburgh, the Center for Rural Health Practice and Drexel University.

For information, contact the Center for Rural Health Practice at (814)362-5050.
