Bouvé pharmacy leaders receive funding for collaboration with MGH Division of Infectious Diseases

Congratulations Dr. Michael Gonyeau and Dr. Jenny Van Amburgh for receiving funding for their collaborative project with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).

MGH’s Division of Infectious Diseases, Infection Control Unit, and the Center for Disaster Medicine (CDM) has been selected as a recipient under a new U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cooperative agreement Strengthening Healthcare Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) and Improving Patient Safety in the United States (CDC-RFA-CK22-2203).  MGH will collaborate with Bouvé College of Health Sciences’ School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences to develop competency-based curricula and assessments for adult learners.

The work through this cooperative agreement will “improve infection prevention and control (IPC) practices and education across healthcare settings and healthcare personnel.”

Congratulations to our pharmacy leaders for continuing Bouvé’s mission of tackling health challenges and supporting lifelong learning.
