Nationals announce for La Trobe U, again

There’s a second funding announcement in a week

LT U announces it has $19.5m in federal funding for a rural clinical health school, in Shepparton, one of the regional Vic centres where the university has a campus.

The school will, “substantially increase the number of nursing and midwifery and allied health students undertaking their studies and training in the region.”

On Friday LT U announced it has $5m from the Commonwealth’s Regional Research Collaboration fund, to research medicinal cannabis cultivation.

Regional Education Minister and Nationals senator, Bridget McKenzie announced the funding again, on the Nationals web page, Sunday afternoon – which suggests Regional Health Minister and Nationals MP, David Gillespie might announce the health school tomorrow.
