Project to boost research training for Thai nurses

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A new project involving the University of Michigan and an institute within Thailand's Ministry of Public Health will help provide research training for nurses and other health professionals.

The "Strengthening Nurse NCD Research and Training Capacity in Thailand" project announced Wednesday by the Ann Arbor school is funded by a $1.15 million grant from the Fogarty International Center, which is part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

The program will build on collaboration between the University of Michigan School of Nursing and the Praboromarajchanok Institute for Health Workforce Development. Instructors, mentors and advisers will create a five-year training program.
