“This is such an exciting day for us,” said Dr. Gloria McNeal, Dean of National University’s (NU) School of Health and Human Services (SHHS) last month at the grand opening of the National University Nurse-Managed Clinic. The clinic will be community based in the Los Angeles area and is the result of a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to the SHHS. The effort is based out of NU’s LA campus and is connected through telehealth technologies to five community sites in the area. The public launch event was held at one of the sites, the Tree of Life Missionary Baptist Church in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles.
