GMR Funds the Iowa Public Health Research Center at Allen College
NNLM GMR office is excited to announce Allen College receiving funding for the second year in a row to expand the services of the Iowa Public Health Research Center. This unique project aims to address an information and library-services gap for unaffiliated public health professionals in the state.
Due to the prevalence of underserved health communities, medically underserved areas, and remote rural conditions, Northeast Iowa has an especially intense need for programming that provides area health departments with research assistance and access. The Iowa Public Health Research Center (IPHRC) provides access for public health departments across Iowa’s 99 counties to the Allen College library resources and librarian. Iowa public health departments are frequently understaffed and in need of research support and assistance. IPHRC aims to fill that void and support institutions as they work to implement evidence-based public health interventions. Read more.
