Minnesota: The Mayo Clinic has been awarded $6,000,000 to expand cancer prevention and outreach to American Indian and Alaska Native patients.

The National Cancer Institute gave the five-year grant for clinical research studies in Alaska, Wisconsin and the Hampton Faculty Fellows Program.

Dr. Judith Kaur is director of the The Mayo's Native American Programs. Kaur is one of only two American Indian medical oncologists in the United States.

Kaur will lead the new Spirit of EAGLES Community Network Program. EAGLES will focus on "comprehensive cancer control, including translational research, clinical trials and continued community-based participatory research," she said.
