The Foundation of UMDNJ received a $300,000 grant from the Rosanne H. Silbermann Foundation for the Child Health Program (CHP) at the School of Nursing's François Xavier Bagnoud Center. The grant will be used to develop a child welfare curriculum to meet the physical and mental health needs of children in New Jersey's foster care system. Children in foster care often experience developmental, behavioral and mental health problems requiring specialized nursing skills. Established in 2000, the CHP has managed health services for hundreds of foster-care children throughout New Jersey since 2007—with exceptional outcomes in the areas of immunization, mental health, dental screening and well-child care.
