Schools get grants to encourage health-related careers
Southeast Missouri State University and Farmington High School recently received grant money to help spur students toward a career in the health industry.
The Missouri Foundation for Health gave the schools the grant money through its Health Care Workforce Development funding program. Southeast received $150,000 to help educate elementary school counselors and students about health career options. Farmington received $133,140 for coursework, career counseling and field experiences that steer students toward health careers.
The grants are part of $5.8 million being given out by the foundation, a nongovernmental organization established in 2000.
