Missouri dental school awarded $1.5M HRSA grant

Kansas City (Mo.) University's upcoming dental school was recently awarded a $1.5 million grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration.

The grant is part of the HRSA's predoctoral training general, pediatric and public health dentistry and dental hygiene program, according to an Aug. 10 KZRG article.   

The grant will help the school serve vulnerable and underserved communities once it opens in 2023 in Joplin, Mo. The funds will go toward its Educational Navigation for Rural and Interprofessional Community Health program, which will create a career pathway for primary care dentists who will deliver patient-centered dental care throughout Southwest Missouri, Southeast Kansas, Northeastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
