Consultant gets $3,500 to run meeting
LOVELAND - After a contentious election that brought three new members to council, city officials decided they might need a little professional help setting goals for this year.
Officials have agreed to pay $3,500 to Management Partners Inc. to orchestrate the annual goal-setting meeting 7-9 p.m. Tuesday at the safety center on South Lebanon Road.
Management Partners is headed by Gerald Newfarmer, who was Cincinnati city manager in the early 1990s.
The city employed the firm two years ago to help administrators and council develop a vision statement.
$2M awarded for cultural competence
CORRYVILLE - The University of Cincinnati has won a $2 million federal grant to expand "cultural competence" training for would-be family doctors.
The grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration is part of a larger effort at the UC Medical Center to address concerns that minorities face less access to care and less successful treatment outcomes.
The UC Department of Family Medicine plans to use the grant to create an Underserved Family Medicine Fellowship and a Family Medicine Underserved Residency Track.
