Last week, HHS awarded $40 million in grants to public health departments around the U.S. to bolster their infrastructure and create jobs. The California Department of Public Health, the Los Angeles County Public Health Department and the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency received funding through these grants. Meanwhile, Blue Shield of California Foundation awarded $20,000 to CHICO Women's Health Specialists as part of efforts to strengthen the statewide network of community clinics and health centers and extend health care services to uninsured residents. In addition, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine has awarded research planning grants to five teams at UC-Davis Health System.
