Congresswoman Johnson Announces $2.8 Million Grant for Children’s Hospital
Dallas, TX – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson today announced that the Department of Health and Human Services awarded Children’s Medical Center Dallas with a $2,887,257 grant. The funding will enhance the Children’s Graduate Medical Education Payment Program.
“Children’s Hospital is a world-class medical institution, which serves families by providing, at times, life-saving care for the young. I am delighted to announce that Children’s will receive additional funding to help train the next generation of medical professionals who will care for children that have taken ill,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “As someone who began my career as a nurse offering medical care, I believe there a few causes more deserving of this funding than teaching new doctors and nurses to offer care for the young. It is a great pleasure to congratulate Children’s Hospital on receiving this award.”
The grant funding period runs through September 30, 2019.
