Sanford Health receives $11.3M NIH grant to advance population health research

Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Sanford Health's Population Health Group received an $11.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study health outcomes and disparities in American Indian communities, according to the Watertown Public Opinion.

 The five-year grant will help support current research, establish new population health centers and employ new faculty members.

"A grant like this is a real gift to Sanford Research and South Dakota," Amy Elliott, PhD, senior director at Sanford Research and principal investigator for the grant, told the Watertown Public Opinion. "One of the most gratifying parts of my job is studying and understanding the people in our region, and then looking for ways to improve their health. This will help us continue that work."
