Ohio has secured $10 million in federal funds to train 1,000 health professionals to provide better medical care for the 2.1 million people statewide on Medicaid.
The money will go to six Ohio universities —
including Wright State University — for the schools to prepare medical
students, residents, fellows and professionals to work as a team for
low-income families and disabled patients.
“It’s a very different way of approaching the issue,” said Ohio Medicaid Director John McCarthy.
