American Indians into Medicine: The Indian Health Service (IHS) announces that competitive grant applications are being accepted for the American Indians into Medicine Program. These grants are established under the authority of 25 U.S.C. 1616g (a) of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act, as amended by Public Law (Pub. L.) 102-573. The purpose of the Indians into Medicine program is to augment the number of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) health professionals serving AI/AN by encouraging them to enter the health professions and removing the multiple barriers to their entrance into IHS and private practice among AI/AN communities. For the purpose of maintaining and expanding the Indians into Medicine program two grants will be funded. One grant will be funded at $300,000 and a second grant will be funded at $60,000. Each grant will have different criteria which will be listed separately in this announcement. This program is described at 93.970 in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance. The Public Health Service (PHS) is committed to achieving the health promotion and disease prevention objectives of Healthy People 2010, a PHS-led activity for setting priority areas. This program announcement is related to the priority area of Educational and Community-based programs. Potential applicants may obtain a copy of Healthy People 2010, summary report in print, Stock No. 017-001-00547-9, or via CD-ROM, Stock No. 107-001-00549-5, through the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, P.O.

In addition, Pub. L. 103-227, the Pro-Children Act of 1994, prohibits smoking in certain facilities (or in some cases, any portion of the facility) in which regular or routine education, library, day care, health care, or early childhood development services are provided to children. This is consistent with the PHS mission to protect and advance the physical and mental health of the American people.
