Health leaders receive resources to transform public health

Health Commissioner Gretchen Musicant and Senior Public Health Researcher/Epidemiologist Mageen Caines have been selected to participate in in an action-oriented program that will help them design and implement a transformative concept that expands the capacity of the Minneapolis Health Department.

Using the grant program, the City can develop a public-facing integrated data system that will capture city-level data focused on health inequalities so communities and policymakers have the information they need to make crucial decisions.

Over the next 18 months, Musicant and Caines will receive a resource grant up to $125,000, coaching and technical help to evolve their ideas into action and transform public health in the community through The Kresge Foundation’s Emerging Leaders in Public Health initiative.

The Kresge Foundation chose 40 public health leaders throughout the nation to work in teams of two in its second cohort of the program. Learn more about the Emerging Leaders in Public Health initiative.
