Good news out of Arizona! The University of Arizona Cancer Center is receiving a grant to help with Native American cancer research. The UA Cancer Center will get part of a $13 million grant for tribal-approved research. The grant will also serve to keep recruiting Native students to work in the biomedical field.

The grant will help them work with tribal health services on three reservations in Arizona including the Navajo Nation, the Hopi reservation and the Tohono O'odham Nation.

Here's more on the story from Tucson News Now.
