Mexico's government is helping promote a health-care screening and prevention program in southwestern Kansas.

The Garden City Telegram reports the Mexican government has donated $31,000 to support a staff position with the Juntos Center for Advancing Latino Health. The Juntos program is an initiative of the University of Kansas Medical Center.

The staff member will help connect people to clinics in Liberal, Great Bend, Dodge City and Garden City where they can be screened for cancer, diabetes and other illnesses.

Juntos Center director Dr. Paula Cupertino says the program brings the services of KU Medical Center to underserved communities in southwestern Kansas.
