U.S. Senator Richard Shelby, R-Ala., a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced today that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will award $639,992 to Alabama A&M University for the Health Careers Opportunity Program.

"It is important that we continue to create the conditions that will allow hard-working students to succeed in the professional field of their choice," said Shelby. "This grant will help Alabama's students enhance their academic skills so that they may enter and graduate from a health professional training program."
