Jefferson Lands $7.5M Grant for Health Improvement Project

Jefferson College of Population Health received a $7.5 million grant Monday that will be used to create a center dedicated to improving the health of people living in and around Johnstown, Pa.

“Ultimately, our goal is to create a measurable, multi-generational impact on the quality of life here,” said Susan Mann, president of the 1889 Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Johnstown that supports initiatives to improve overall health and wellness of people in Cambria and Somerset counties.

“That will, in turn, have positive effects on the business climate and the vibrancy of our entire community, while lowering the cost of health care." The funds will cover the cost of establishing the 1889 Foundation-Jefferson Center for Population Health in Johnstown.
