"Asthma is on the rise in South Texas and nationwide, and the $2.5 million that is coming to our asthma disease management study will be used to improve the lives of those who donít take breathing for granted," President Francisco G. Cigarroa, M.D., said. "We thank Congressman Henry Bonilla for his leadership in securing that funding."
Dr. Cigarroa applauded the work of Sen. John Cornyn in guaranteeing that $994,000 would come to the Lower Rio Grande Valley Regional Academic Health Center (RAHC) for the countryís first Hispanic Nutrition Research Center. The nutrition research center will operate from the RAHC Medical Education Division at Harlingen.
Dr. Cigarroa also said the $500,000 obtained for myeloma research through the leadership of Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison will enhance the strong base of cancer research at the Health Science Center. Myeloma is a cancer of the bone marrow.
