Donald McEachinCongressman A. Donald McEachin announced two grant awards from the Department of Health and Human Resources to VCU for aging research for $459,116 and for Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement for $749,583.

The purpose of the Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program is to improve the health outcomes for older adults by developing a healthcare workforce that maximizes patient and family engagement, and by integrating geriatrics and primary care.
