Norfolk State University to Offer a New Master’s Degree Program in Health Analytics

Norfolk State University, the historically Black educational institution in Virginia, announced that it is establishing a master’s degree in health analytics that will be housed in the department of nursing and allied health. The cooperative agreement, in consortium with the Virginia Department of Health and the Hampton Roads Community Health Center, seeks to produce 100 underrepresented minority graduates by December 2024. Health informatics utilizes information technology to improve healthcare outcomes.

“The formation of a consortium with the Virginia Department of Health and Hampton Roads Community Health Center will help to share best practices, pool resources, increase the exposure and credibility of the master of health informatics as a signature program, as well as meeting mutual goals that are beneficial to Virginia’s local and state communities,” said Marie St. Rose, director of allied health programs at the university.

The university has received a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as part of a larger $73-million effort to train 4,000 people in public health informatics and technology.
