MCW invests $1.7 million in community projects
August 11, Wisconsin Health News

A program seeking to enhance the quality of Milwaukee afterschool programs and a Jackson County suicide prevention project will receive funding from the Medical College of Wisconsin's Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment.

The endowment will contribute more than $1.7 million to six initiatives, including a community health project in Eau Claire that will evaluate how the redevelopment of a neighborhood will impact health. 

The other three projects are all based in Milwaukee and seek to mitigate the effects of outstanding arrest warrants, support youth-to-youth condom distribution and increase access to fruits and vegetables.
