GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A University of North Dakota organization has been designated by federal authorities as one of six national rural health research centers.

UND officials say the school's Center for Rural Health has been awarded a four-year grant for $2.64 million.

The grant will pay for at least 16 research studies on rural health, especially on how health care reform will affect access and delivery.

Gary Hart, director of the UND center, says researchers will give their findings to federal policymakers.
