Grateful for $1M for UTRGV medical school

THE MONITOR EDITORIAL BOARD

We congratulate the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Medical School for recently receiving $1 million from Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas to be used by the school of medicine's first clinic in the region to help high-risk youth.

The $1,065,510 grant will go to the Integrated Care Collaborative Unit at the John Austin Peña Memorial Center in Edinburg.
