(WIBW) - Sen. Jerry Moran says an announcement will come Thursday on the KU Cancer Center's National Cancer Institute designation.
Moran issued a media advisory Wednesday that he will attend a 2 pm Thursday event to formally announce KU's selection.
In an earlier statement, Moran said, "I know it will not only be great news for the university and Kansas City, but also a fantastic development for the entire state of Kansas and the region."
Gov. Sam Brownback has said getting the designation was a top priority.
