NMC, UNLV School of Community Health Sciences, & Hearst Foundations Collaboration

The Nevada Medical Center received initial approval and was recommended for a $100k grant following a successful site visit in Las Vegas by the leader of San Francisco based Hearst Foundation.  This grant will allow NMC, in collaboration with the UNLV School of Community Health Sciences, to take action on the findings in NMC’s Healthcare Report Card about mental health challenges with children in the 8th and 9th grades.  Final approval will be given mid-September based on the initial approval/recommendation.
