SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The University of Utah is one of four universities that will share multi-(M)-million dollar grant to teach students to integrate computer technology when analyzing and sharing critical information among public health agencies, hospitals and community health providers.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grant was awarded to the National Library of Medicine, a part of the National Institutes of Health.

The program funds education training sites at Utah and three other universities, Columbia, Johns Hopkins and the University of Washington.

Starting July first, students will receive training in basic information science and public health principles, focused preparation in applying information to public health problems and onsite experience with public health agencies.

All four sites currently host information training programs supported by the National Library of Medicine.
