Grant Opportunity from the North Dakota Chapter
The North Dakota Chapter has established a special fund to support community action activities. Grants of up to $5000 will be made available to students, residents, and practicing physicians who want to do something special to address the unmet health care needs of the citizens of our State. Such projects might include:
- public health projects
- service to indigent and other underserved populations
- service to high risk groups
- novel approaches to health care
Projects whose scope can be magnified by collaboration with other entities, such as local or State health departments, non-profit groups, or other health care organizations are encouraged.
Interested parties may apply for these funds by submitting a brief proposal consisting of:
- a statement of the problem being addressed
- a synopsis of efforts currently available to meet the problem
- an outline of the project being proposed
- a timeline for the project
- a plan for outcomes analysis
- a budget
Proposals should be submitted to North Dakota Chapter Governor's, James D. Brosseau, MD, FACP at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be reviewed by the ND Chapter Advisory Council and awards will be announced on or about May 15 and September 1.
First grant was awarded to the University of North Dakota College of Nursing (CON) to conduct a diabetes prevention program among Native Americans attending and teaching at UND. The CON will also conduct a training program for Native American students to take back to the various reservations in our State. Our award of $5000 was matched by another $5000 from the Dakota Medical Foundation. We are all excited about the opportunity to develop this partnership with the College of Nursing.
