David Buchanan, Professor of Community Health Education, received one of five Public Service Endowment Grants from the university's Office of Research Development. The awards were given to faculty-led projects intended to enhance the public service mission of the campus by translating faculty and staff research for use that benefits community partners while engaging them in the process.
A grant of $14,400 went to Buchanan to engage youth in Springfield in designing a violence prevention program. He is collaborating with Men of Color Health Awareness (MOCHA).
Buchanan's project was one of three grants awarded to SPHHS faculty. For more information on all grant recipients, read here.
