Health Department getting stimulus funds

JACKSON — More than 60 awards totaling in excess of $7.6 million has been awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to help states recruit new healthcare clinicians and alleviate their debt burden.

The funds are part of the $500 million appropriated to HHS’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to address workforce shortages and encourage diversity in the health professions.

The Mississippi State Department of Health is to receive $44,000.
