Two Year Grant for UTEP Professor Focuses on Primary Care in Rural Areas

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board – Minority Health Program recently awarded a two-year, $387,486 grant to Candyce Berger, Ph.D., professor of social work and associate dean for research and faculty affairs in UTEP’s College of Health Sciences.

The grant will be used to study integrated primary care in predominantly rural settings.

This project is a collaboration that involves researchers from UTEP’s School of Pharmacy and the College of Health Sciences’ departments of Social Work and Physical Therapy, and four community partners including the University’s Student Health Center.

Berger is the project’s principal investigator. José O. Rivera, Pharm.D., dean of the pharmacy school, is the grant’s co-PI.

The plan will place students in rural, integrated health care settings, involve them and staff at partner sites in interprofessional educational activities, and encourage interest in the pursuit of academic careers to educate future generations.
