Arizona Western College will spend a little less next school year, but the College Property tax rate will be a little more.  AWC Vice President for Finance and Administrative Services Carole Coleman says next year's budget totals just under 78 million dollars, about 760 thousand dollars less than this school year.

Coleman says a smaller Capital budget is the key reason for the difference.  This year major projects, including building renovations for the Engineering Technology program and construction of a new Public Safety Institute facility, were paid for.

Yuma-A happy environment is a safe environment.

That’s the thinking behind a push at the Yuma’s local cancer center to create a welcoming space for cancer patients receiving treatment. 

KAWC’s Stephanie Sanchez has more on the Yuma Regional Cancer Center’s Art Heals project.

Yuma-Patients dealing with a serious illness need specialized medical care. Unlike end of life, or hospice care, palliative care offers relief to patients dealing with chronic life-threatening illness with an eye toward recovery. This requires specific training and care models for varied patients, including children.

During this National Nurses Week, KAWC's Stephanie Sanchez speaks with the director of the National Institute of Nursing Research, Dr. Patricia Grady.

Grady says people often confuse palliative care with hospice care.
