Touro University gets health care program grant

By From page A3 | February 14, 2012

FAIRFIELD – Touro University on Mare Island was awarded a $125,060 state grant for its physician assistant training program.

The money is from the Office of Statewide Health Planning’s Song-Brown program. It will help recruit students who are from underserved areas or backgrounds, according to a university press release. It will also do such things as provide housing and transportation stipends for students who are on rotations at underserved sites.

“The Song-Brown program helps bridge the gaps between enhancing training programs and improving access to vulnerable populations,” said Grace Landel, Touro’s physician assistant program director, in a press release. “This award will ensure we are expanding our process for training physician assistants who are committed to decreasing health disparities in California.”
