This first edition of the OHRO (Office of Health Resources Opportunity) Digest contains brief summaries of each active project in the Health Careers Opportunity Grant Program. (Projects funded under this federal program are designed to increase the number of health professionals from disadvantaged backgrounds. The project grants meet costs related to the following needs of the disadvantaged: (1) identification, recruitment, and selection, (2) school entry facilitation, (3) counseling or other services, (4) access to preliminary education, and (5) information regarding financial aid sources.) Introductory sections contain description of the background of federal health career opportunity granting projects and legislation; a copy of the Health Professions Educational Assistance Act, which is the origin of the current health career opportunity program; and a table of active projects and funds awarded in the health career opportunity program by state and fiscal year. The major contents are the abstracts of ninety-nine projects listed alphabetically by state. Each abstract includes the institution's name, the project name, project dates, amount of funding, the program purpose, the target group, and the program plan. (CSS)
