The University of Rhode Island has reorganized its health program offerings as it seeks to increase research, outreach and cross-disciplinary instruction.

The school is already recognized for its research in Alzheimers, neurological conditions, premature infant birth and development, plant-based pharmaceuticals and other disciplines. With the changes, the College of Health Sciences will merge with the nursing and pharmacy colleges to form the Institute of Integrated Health and Innovation.

The university will seek to create an environment in which the students, faculty and professionals can come together to have an understanding of the latest developments in the health fields.

Magali Angeloni, the director of the Rhode Island Department of Health's Academic Center; David Dooley, the president of the University of Rhode Island; and Donald DeHayes, the provost and vice president of the university's academic affairs guided the restructuring.
