GroceriesHealth Choice Network (HCN) and its partners including the Miami CTSI have embarked on a transformative journey to mitigate food insecurity in underserved communities thanks to multi-year funding recently awarded by the NIH Common Fund Community Partnerships to Advance Science for Society (ComPASS).

“This initiative cuts across institutes with coalition partners, including the University of Miami’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and Feeding South Florida, to allow for greater collaboration and innovative research in high-priority areas,” said Dr. Katherine Chung-Bridges, Director of Research at HCN.
