The Tufts Community Research Center (TCRC) selected two university-community partnerships to be the recipients of seed grant funding for implementing their proposals. The first, titled “Mitigating the stress effects of racism on health through healing, education, and empowerment,” is a partnership between Tufts and the Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center. The second project is a cooperative effort between Tufts and MyRWA to address pollution in Alewife Brook. This proposal seeks to accurately assess pollution levels and sources of phosphorus loads in the Alewife Brook. The results of this project will inform future research and action. Thank you Tufts!
