Philips Partners with the Payne Center

Philips announced a partnership with The Dr. N. Joyce Payne Center for Social Justice to support research and innovative health-related programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The Dr. N. Joyce Payne Center is an initiative of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

HBCUs have been traditionally underfunded, creating a key challenge in addressing health equity. This partnership will not only advocate for increased research grants and appropriations for programs that drive solutions to improve access to care in underserved communities but will also support faculty research on HBCU campuses that will inform policymakers.
