The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) received a one-year, $8,000 award from the Health Resources and Services Administration to fund a new Public Health Traineeship program.
Laura Cassidy, Ph.D., M.S., associate professor in the Institute for Health and Society, director of MCW’s epidemiology program, and director of the public and community health doctoral program, is the program director for the grant.
The traineeship is aimed at helping MCW develop students capable of addressing shortages in Wisconsin’s public health workforce, and will help MCW support doctoral candidates as they complete their dissertation research.
The funds should help build new opportunities for community-academic partnerships and community-based participatory research projects, both of which will better prepare students to strengthen the public health workforce in Wisconsin.
