COLUMBUS, Ohio — Eighteen universities, medical schools and hospitals in Ohio have been awarded almost $4.8 million in federal funds as part of an effort to boost access to primary care.

The workforce grants were recently announced by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration.Agency officials say the money will help fund education and training programs for providers who will practice in underserved areas.
The grants help provide nursing opportunities for minorities, training for postdoctoral health care professionals in primary care research, and allow nursing schools to offer partial loan forgiveness.

The University of Cincinnati and the Ohio State University are among the recipients of the grants.
