The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) is partnering with the American Medical Association and Black Women’s Health Imperative to support the development of new approaches to prediabetes in vulnerable populations.
In a new request for proposals, the organizations offer a multiyear grant opportunity that seeks to test and evaluate innovative approaches to address prediabetes, as well as support enrollment and retention in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention–recognized National Diabetes Prevention Program. Approaches should include at least one social determinant of health that could act as a barrier to program participation. Proposals also should identify Type 2 diabetes prevention champions within the health care organization.
To be eligible for the grant, essential hospitals must serve as administrators of the National Diabetes Prevention Program. Additional criteria include: having capacity for automated patient identification and referral, either though an electronic health record or other approach; and having a patient population that includes black and Hispanic women, the target population for this funding opportunity.
Interested essential hospitals can learn more at the ACPM site. The application deadline is March 19, 2019 at 5pm ET.
