ProJo: Public-health partnership launched by Roger Williams University and state health department
BRISTOL, R.I. — Roger Williams University and the state Department of Health have begun a new partnership that will train student “public health scholars” and establish other programs intended to educate young people and help improve the health of all Rhode Islanders.
The partnership was confirmed with a memorandum of understanding signed by state public health director Dr. Nicole Alexander-Scott and Donald J. Farish, president of Roger Williams. It comes as the university is set to open its own academic department of public health, on July 1.
“This new collaboration will allow us to develop, implement and evaluate cutting-edge public health interventions that will help improve health outcomes in every ZIP code in Rhode Island,” Alexander-Scott said.
