Gets $54,430 Grant For Neurological Study The Washington State Depart- ment of Health has been awarded a grant in the amount of $54,430 to assess and investigate the state's need to csta'blish services for patients with neurological and sensory diseases, Dr. Bernard Bu- cove, state health director, an- nounced. The award was one of the first to be made by the Neurological and senso T Disease Service Pro- gram 6f the Public Health Se,w- ice, to activate a new national program to establish and improve community services ,for the care of patients with neurological and sensory disorders. 2he Washing- ton State Department of Health was one of seven state health de- partments to which such grants were authorized for survey and develoment of state-wide service programs, Bucove said. Jess B. Sielholz, W[.D.: chief of Division of Adult Health, Wash- ington State Department of Health, has been naned as project di- recto,-. The goal of the new program is to hasten effective utilization of new medical knowledge of the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of neuro-sen- sory disorders in communities throughout the nation. In all, 23 grants amounting to more than $800,000 were made to official voluntary, and private non-profit health agencies, medical centers and medical schools, in 13 states and the Virgin Islands. It is hoped that the approach will make an effective impact up- on the public health problem that brain and nervous system disa- ;bilities represent, Dr. Bucove said.
