UT Health Science Center awarded $333K diabetes research grant

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen says the University of Tennessee Health Science Center has been awarded a federal grant of more than $333,000 for diabetes, endocrinology and metabolic research.

Cohen said in a statement Tuesday that the center, located in Memphis, was awarded the grant by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The $333,102 will be distributed by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.

Cohen, a Memphis Democrat, says the grant will give researchers the tools they need to help people in Memphis and across the country reduce risk factors, improve diabetes management and increase their quality of life.
