Yakima Rotarians get a visit from Washington State University's president this afternoon.
Elson Floyd spoke at today's rotary luncheon.
Floyd says he came to update the public on what the university is doing to help expand its reach over to Yakima and its health science program at Pacific Northwest University.
Floyd also says he plans on asking for financial assistance during the upcoming legislative session for funding for a health sciences campus in Yakima.
"Building a health sciences building here is a hot priority in the state of Washington," said Floyd, "There are ways in which Washington State University, especially through the college of pharmacy, can add value in that regard."
