New $40 million initiative will support diverse, rural communities

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) has chosen Atlanta’s Morehouse School of Medicine to lead a $40 million initiative to support places hit hard by the pandemic such as rural and diverse communities. The initiative, called the National Infrastructure for Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19 within Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities (NIMIC), will be a three-year project. OMH and the Morehouse School of Medicine will collaborate with community-based organizations providing healthcare and social services responding to the pandemic. #covid-19 #racialequity #rural
