To date, we've awarded about $96.4 million to support 479 projects through the Engagement Awards program.
We recently approved new awards to support projects including:
- A project led by Johns Hopkins School of Medicine to create a network of providers that are engaged in the infusion clinic model, identify facilitators and barriers to implementing this model, and develop an implementation toolkit for the opening of infusion clinics. These efforts seek to improve care quality for the management of vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC) in people with sickle cell disease (SCD).
- An undertaking by the Multicultural AIDS Coalition to increase patient engagement and equitable partnerships in research for African immigrant patients, caregivers, and organizations, and foster a sustainable patient-driven research network focused on implementing PCOR/CER to address disparities in African immigrant health outcomes.
- A convening led by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences to promote strategies that enhance the development and sustainability of community-campus partnerships in an effort to eliminate health disparities in Arkansas.
