Dr. Ronnie A. Dunn, Associate Professor and Executive Director of the Diversity Institute at the School of Urban Affairs, has been awarded a $30,000 grant by Ideastream for “Connecting the Dots Impact Measurement.” This project was funded through Ideastream’s “Connecting the Dots Between Race and Health” program, which aims to raise awareness about racism as a public health crisis and advance health equity in Northeast Ohio.

The projects selected for funding focus on raising awareness about the connection between racism and health, raising awareness about potential solutions, empowering people to act to eliminate health disparities, and holding government and healthcare officials accountable for addressing the root of the health issues and creating equality in Northeast Ohio. Dr. Dunn's study will assess the impact of projects selected for funding by Ideastream.
