Dr. Vaughn Millner and Dr. Brandon Browning
Dr. Vaughn Millner, and Dr. Brandon Browning were part of a team that was awarded
a Health Resources and Services Administration federal grant. The Principal Investigator
is Dr. Allen Perkins of the Department of Family Medicine at USA. The grant, entitled
Primary Care Training and Enhancement, provides $1,841,644 in funding over 5 years.
The purpose of the grant is to:
(a) implement and evaluate a plan to identify and engage a population of high risk patients in their own health care leading to improvement in health status and a reduction in health care costs, and
(b) enhance the interprofessional training of family medicine residents and other allied health professionals, including mental health professionals, in working in an integrated health care setting.
Toward these ends Dr. Vaughn Millner and Dr. Brandon Browning, both faculty in Counselor Education in the Department of Professional Studies, will be designing educational modules on mental health care for family medicine residents, as well as supervising, mentoring and leading the mental health service delivery efforts in the Family Medicine Department during this grant. This includes working with master's students from their own Clinical Mental Health Counseling program who will be completing their clinical field placement in the Department of Family Medicine.

Department of Leadership and Teacher Education
"I like to set an environment where we are exchanging information and ideas, we are working together; I learn from my students, they learn from me, and we learn from each other."
Dr. Peggy Delmas
Department of Professional Studies
"I believe we have to sort of tear down the walls of where we are and really go out and see what types of things we can do to help our community..."
Dr. Joe'l Lewis
Department of Health, Physical Education & Leisure Studies
"If you combine all of the things we have here..., it becomes a nice mix for students to actually see what they are learning in the classroom and experiencing it out there at sport and recreation events."
