The Department of Physician Assistant Studies received a five-year, almost $1 million grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to provide better primary care to more patients. The funding period began Aug. 1 and runs through July 31, 2017. “We expect this project to provide high-quality training materials and resources for current and future faculty,” said Juanita Wallace, Ph.D., dean of the School of Health Professions. “More importantly, we will be able to both support and enhance collaborative primary care experiences for our students and future graduates.”
