Dr. Brewer Awarded The Podiatry Foundation Grant
Congratulations to Dr. Tom Brewer, associate professor of Health Policy and Management, for receiving a $59,820 grant to conduct a policy surveillance of Medicaid statutes and regulations related to coverage for podiatric medical services. Dr. Brewer is collaborating with the Center for Public Health Law Research at the Beasley School of Law, Temple University where he holds a research fellowship. Ultimately the data will become part of the LawAtlas Project which makes public health related data available to researchers, policymakers and the public. The project, entitled "Medicaid Coverage for Podiatric Care: National Survey," is funded by The Podiatry Foundation whose mission is to promote and foster podiatric medical education and research.
