NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Center for Health Policy at Meharry Medical College has received an $8 million grant for its BRIDGE to Success program, according to a Monday news release.

The program is a partnership with certain Nashville public schools that includes workshops for children and parents on things like school readiness, financial literacy and access to health care.

The grant comes from the Tennessee Department of Human Services’ 2Gen program. That’s a two-generation approach that aims to address the needs of children and parents at the same time, helping families move towards educational success and economic security.
