Pittsford, NY - More funding to combat the state's decline in primary care physicians is on it's way. 

Senator Gilibrand and Schumer have announced $335,000 in federal funds will go towards the nursing programs at St. John Fisher College. Fisher's Wegmans School of Nursing will use the money to support the education of 24 of their graduate students.

The funding is the first of a two part plan, with an additional $363,000 to be provided to nursing programs next year.
