The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has unveiled $1.4 million in grants for Rowan University and Rutgers University-Camden medical research and job training programs, U.S. Representative Donald Norcross, D-1st District, announced Thursday.

Rowan will receive $400,000 from the HHS’ Health Careers Opportunity program for career training in osteopathic medicine, and $525,436 from the federal department’s Primary Care Champions program to train primary care doctors.

“This award will strengthen our pipeline programs enabling young men and women from disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue careers in osteopathic medicine, consistent with the school’s mission of training clinically skillful, compassionate physicians from diverse backgrounds,” said Thomas Cavalieri, dean of the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine.

Rutgers University-Camden will receive $475,905 from the HHS’ National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences for its research in toxic dental chemicals.
