The Committee's major function is to advise the ANA MFP Program staff on strategies and activities to achieve the goals of the MFP-Traditional grant (given by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)) at ANA. The purpose of the MFP-Traditional grant is to reduce health disparities and improve health care outcomes for racially and ethnically diverse populations by increasing the number of culturally competent behavioral health professionals available to provide high quality care to underserved minority populations in the public and private non-profit sectors, and in clinical and community-based organizations and institutions. Additionally, these minority nurses prepared at the doctoral level are the thought leaders in the areas of research and policy development focused on the elimination of health disparities in minority populations. The MFP provides opportunities for minority nurses to attain a doctoral degree, with certification in mental health and substance abuse disorders prevention, treatment, and recovery across the life span. Additional information can be found at the program's website:www.emfp.org.
