The Office of the National Health Coordinator for Health IT received $80 million to initiate or expand training, certification and degree programs in public health informatics and data science at minority-serving institutions, the agency said June 1. 

Under the Public Health Informatics & Technology Workforce Development Program, ONC aims to train 4,000 individuals through an interdisciplinary approach in public health informatics and technology to ensure that training, certification and degree programs are sustainable and help increase diversity among public health and technology professionals. 

ONC said it will release updates on the funding opportunity between late spring and early summer.
