AASU Awarded $1.5 Million Grant

Armstrong Atlantic State University’s College of Health Professions has received a grant of nearly $1.5 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to implement an interprofessional care model at St. Joseph’s/Candler’s St. Mary’s Health Center in Savannah.

The interprofessional core team to be developed at St. Mary’s will give its patients a cutting-edge care model that will not only help treat illness but also improve the overall wellness of individuals and by extension, their community. Interprofessional care involves a holistic approach to health care that considers the entirety of a patient’s condition, from specific conditions to lifestyle, transportation, employment and access to food, rather than an approach that simply treats each condition as it occurs.
