The University of Mississippi Center for Population Studies recently released the 2013 evaluation report for the New Pathways Initiative. Findings show important developments in this program intended to address the healthcare workforce shortage and improve quality of life in five Mississippi Delta counties. Elements include enhancement of educational programs concerning health and related science disciplines (6th grade through college) and community engagement. Partners in this initiative include the Dreyfus Health Foundation of The Rogosin Institute, Tri-County Workforce Alliance, and the Mississippi Office of Nursing Workforce. Financial support is provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. In the new programmatic year, the name of the initiative will be changed to “New Pathways to Health,” and the Aaron E. Henry Community Health Services Center, Inc. is joining as a partner.
