Morris Brown College Receives $900,000 Grant To Fight HIV/AIDS

Famed HBCU Morris Brown College has received a three-year, $900k grant to help fight HIV/AIDS infections among African American young adults in Georgia according to HBCU Digest:

A coalition of Morris Brown officials, faculty from surrounding colleges, non-profit organizations and public health agencies, launched the latest round of seminar-styled eduction sessions for youth on the Morris Brown campus, with a focus on limiting drug and alcohol abuse among college-age residents to prevent risky sexual behaviors.

The grant, part of a national initiative launched by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, targets historically black colleges and minority-serving institutions as service delivery partners in vulnerable areas.

Morris Brown has served as a lead institution in the program since 2014 to help improve public health outcomes among youth in Fulton and Dekalb Counties.
