McEachin announces grants to VCU for cancer prevention, cause research

Donald McEachinCongressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) announced three grant awards from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) for cancer prevention and cause research for $1,394,751.

“As a cancer conqueror myself, I am all too aware of the importance of cancer research and prevention,” said Congressman A. Donald McEachin. “Improved prevention methods will result in fewer Virginians suffering from cancer, making lives healthier and reducing costs. In 2019, it is estimated that 45,400 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the Commonwealth. This clearly demonstrate the importance and significance of this lifesaving research and I am pleased to see VCU involved in such a critical undertaking.”
