United Health Foundation awards grant to Miller department

The Miller School of Medicine’s Department of Family Medicine and Community Health received a $1 million grant Friday from the United Health Foundation to aid in funding the foundation’s “Center of Excellence” at the Jefferson Reaves Sr. Health Center. The grant will allow expanded access and improved healthcare quality, and will reduce disparities at the Reaves Center, a residency training facility for the Department of Family Medicine.

$6.8 million in grants received from Department of Defense

The U.S. Department of Defense awarded the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute a $2 million grant this past week. The William Lehman Injury Research Center, the research arm of the Ryder Trauma Center, and the Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education also received grants totaling $4.8 million. The department takes special interest in the Bascom Palmer Institute because of the frequency of eye injuries that military personnel obtain during their duty. Also, a large number of veterans and other Americans suffer from long-term eye disabilities, including macular degeneration and glaucoma.
