Georgia Professor Selected to Explore Health Disparities Research at NIH Campus

Dr. Trina Salm Ward, an assistant professor in the University of Georgia School of Social Work and an assistant professor of health promotion and behavior in the College of Public Health, will participate in an intensive two-week course on health disparities research at the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, during the first two weeks of August.
