UMKC receives $722K grant for health education

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The University of Missouri-Kansas City has received a $722,000 federal grant aimed at improving health care at a clinic that serves the poor and uninsured.

The school says in a news release that the money will be used to create a collaborative model at the Kansas City CARE Clinic. The model involves clinical teams of faculty and students from the university’s Schools of Nursing and Health Studies, Pharmacy, Dentistry and Social Work and clinical staff from the clinic.

The three-year grant is from the Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

School of Nursing and Health Studies Dean Ann Cary says the grant provides a “powerful opportunity” for the four schools to collaborate. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
