WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has awarded $2,845,520 to the North Dakota Department of Health. Today’s funding will be used to support early cancer detection and prevention efforts across the state through the North Dakota Cancer Prevention and Control Program.
