CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The latest round of grants awarded by New Hampshire's largest health foundation includes projects aimed at reducing health disparities among the state's racial, ethnic and linguistic minorities.
The Endowment for Health awarded 19 grants totaling more than $850,000 in the last three months. Recipients include the Manchester Community Health Center, which will use its nearly $200,000 grant to learn from national experts about how to identify and address health disparities among its patients. Lamprey Health Care, meanwhile, got a $21,000 grant for its Nursing Quest Summer Camp, which promotes awareness of the nursing profession among young people from diverse cultures.
Other grants were aimed at improving the mental health of children and reducing economic and geographic barriers to health care.
