Promoting Public Health in Michigan in the Face of COVID-19
Strengthen your understanding of public health and why it is important in the fight against COVID-19, and beyond.
Our public health faculty are working on nationally-funded research and community outreach projects related to COVID-19.
The National Institutes of Health awarded Dr. Todd Lucas and partners $1.2 million for the Serological Sciences Network for COVID-19 initiative, the nation’s largest coordinated effort to study the immune response to COVID-19.
The $1.4 trillion federal COVID-19 spending bill includes $4.5 million in funding to continue the Flint Registry through 2021.
Closing the racial gap in health outcomes and COVID-19 vaccination rates in Michigan as well as other states is the aim of MSU researchers funded through a $6 million, one-year grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC grant is for the National Network to Innovate for COVID-19 and Adult Vaccine Equity, or NNICE project.
