King’s College was recently awarded a $50,000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) for the purchase of equipment, including a light-scattering detector to enable more advanced research and practice by students and faculty in the chemistry department and three simulation manikins for use by students in the physician assistant studies program. King’s College received technical assistance from the PA Department of Community and Economic Development and NEPA Alliance to secure these funds from the PA ARC allocation. Congressman Matt Cartwright’s office also provided support for the project.
