Jason Carter – Community Health Partnership Interview

Two powerhouses in the Keweenaw…Michigan Technological University and the Portage Health Foundation…are teaming up for a healthier community. The foundation will invest $2.5 million over five years with Michigan Tech investing about twice as much to enhance health and medical programs at the university. Money will also go toward education in the form of scholarships in health–related fields. These investments will lead to advancements in local community health.
