Brice - ttuhsc.edu

A grant from the state will go to help mothers and babies in the area.

The Texas Department of State Health Services has given a $200,000 grant to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing, specifically to develop a coalition aimed at reducing pre-term birth and infant mortality in Lubbock County.

According to a press release, the TTUHSC School of Nursing’s goal with the coalition will address the issues of the county’s high rate of pre-term births, low birth weight, teen pregnancy, low weight gain during pregnancy, lack of father involvement, and lack of good prenatal care.

Linda Brice, associate professor in the School of Nursing will serve as the project’s principal investigator.  This project will involve many different organizations in the area such as the City of Lubbock Health Department, the March of Times, and the University Medical Center Health System.
