LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Norton Healthcare is giving a $1.25 million grant to the University of Louisville for pediatric research.

Norton Healthcare says in a news release that the grant will provide one year of funding to research areas including pediatric cardiac medicine, surgery and clinical research - each of which will receive $100,000.

About $400,000 will go to the Kosair Children’s Hospital Research Institute for research into multi-organ diseases that stem from diabetes or obesity; $300,000 will go to the Child and Adolescent Health Research Design and Support Unit to reduce the number of psychiatric prescriptions that give too much medicine to children; and $250,000 will go to the University of Louisville Autism Center at Kosair Charities.

Norton Healthcare chief medical officer Dr. Steven Hester says research is vital to advancing pediatric care.
