At the State of the Union Address this past January, President Obama introduced a new effort to advance something he called Precision Medicine:

“I want the country that eliminated polio and mapped the human genome to lead a new era of medicine -- one that delivers the right treatment at the right time... So tonight, I'm launching a new Precision Medicine Initiative to bring us closer to curing diseases like cancer and diabetes -- and to give all of us access to the personalized information we need to keep ourselves and our families healthier.”

Clark State Community College is part of a group of seven regional partners that will share a $50,000 grant from the Ohio Development Services Agency to study the need for a local aerospace engineering training center.

The money comes from a Local Government Innovation Fund grant and will help the partners examine how a training center would benefit high school and adult students in Clark and Greene Counties and the surrounding region.
