For example, in 1995, Dr. Andrea Bostrom opened the Herkimer Health Center in collaboration with the Grand Valley State University in an effort to provide mental health services to the vulnerable populations of the inner city. In 1999, a grant from the WK Kellogg Foundation help them with funding “for nurse managed clinic development at four Michigan university colleges of nursing: Wayne State, University of Michigan, Michigan State and Grand Valley State.”
