The Morehouse School of Medicine is providing training and grant funding for leaders to enhance their skills in policy and health equity and to implement projects in their respective communities. The program is actively recruiting leaders from rural areas.
Participants will commit to virtual training sessions for approximately 8 hours each month between July, 2021 and May, 2022.
The training is designed to foster partnerships between elected and appointed officials and community leaders. Teams will be equipped with tools to examine the political determinants of health that influence their respective local communities. Each team will develop a health equity initiative or proposal designed to address identified conditions unique to their local populations and communities.
Eligibility is open to teams of appointed and/or elected officials and community leaders.
The training will be provided at no cost.
Upon successful completion of the training, each partnership team will receive a $20,000 grant to implement their proposed health equity project.
