New Grant Sharpens Focus on Whole-Person Health at St. Thomas
One of Minnesota’s leading foundations focused on integrative care and healing is helping the University of St. Thomas expand opportunities for students, researchers and professionals to transform their communities through whole-person care.
The George Family Foundation has awarded a $500,000 grant to the university’s Morrison Family College of Health. The foundation’s largest ever gift to St. Thomas includes a plan to offer underserved Twin Cities populations access to nursing and exercise science services as part of a widely used pro bono program that already offers counseling and legal services. The grant also will allow St. Thomas to develop more educational and research programs focused on whole-person care at the College of Health.
