Medical College of Wisconsin Awards $3.1M to Health Initiatives, Research

The Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment at the Medical College of Wisconsin has awarded $3.1 million to five community health initiatives and six health research projects aimed at improving health statewide.

Under a $528,610 award, the Children’s Health Alliance of Wisconsin will develop protocols to integrate oral health services into primary care medical clinics and health systems. The initiative’s overall goal is to improve access to dental services and reduce incidence of dental disease on overall health outcomes.

The endowment awarded Guilherme Garcia, PhD, an assistant professor in the department of Otolaryngology and Communication Sciences at the Medical College of Wisconsin, $200,000 to develop methods to detect the most common contributor to obstructive sleep apnea. The findings may lead to  better treatment options for managing this condition.
