Bloomberg American Health Initiative awards first research grants

Posted October 13, 2017

Sharing best practices for public agency responses to climate-induced crises. Creating new models to predict urbanization's effects on climate change. Building a manual to advise colleges and universities on sexual assault prevention. The first grants from the Bloomberg American Health Initiative will support Hopkins researchers in the Bloomberg School of Public Health and beyond who are studying these important issues.

Launched by a $300 million gift from Hopkins alumnus and three-term mayor of New  York City Michael Bloomberg, the Bloomberg American Health Initiative has been established to address several public health policy targets, including environmental challenges, addiction and overdose, adolescent health risks, violence, and obesity and food systems.
