The Dry Bean Health Research Program

With millions of research dollars up for grabs at the National Institutes of Health, the Northarvest Bean Growers Association is interested in seeing some of that money directed towards dry bean research. Through this incentive award program, COMMUNIQUÉ has encouraged researchers to submit proposals dealing with beans and human health to NIH, thus increasing knowledge of the benefits of beans and human health. The result has been millions of dollars of new funding from NIH.
