To date, we've awarded over $44 million to support 223 projects through the Engagement Awards program.
In the past month, we approved roughly $700,000 in new awards through our Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards program. These funds will support projects including:
- A project by e.Republic.Inc designed to advance understanding of how CER findings are (or are not) informing state and local healthcare policy and practice and to facilitate engagement with stakeholders including policy makers and health officials.
- Arkansas Children’s Research Institute’s conferences and associated activities to build a patient-stakeholder partnership to design a patient-centered SATB2-associated syndrome (SAS) research agenda for this newly recognized disorder, characterized by significant neurodevelopmental delay as well as compromise of other systems.
- The Society for Medical Decision Making’s Annual Meeting to advance CER methods in medical decision making relevant to diverse populations including women, children, minority populations, and older adults.
- Boston Medical Center’s initiative to establish a mechanism for patient--centered cancer research at a safety-net hospital by increasing interest in patient-powered research and community engagement in the cancer center and within the broader hospital community.
