Community Participation Research Targeting the Medically Underserved

Posted by on January 26, 2009

Community Participation Research Targeting the Medically Underserved (R21) – Deadline: May 15, 2009 – The ultimate goal of this funding opportunity is to solicit exploratory/ Developmental (R21) grant applications that propose research on health promotion, disease prevention, and health disparities that is jointly conducted by communities and researchers and targets medically underserved areas (MUAs) and medically underserved populations (MUPs) as defined by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). This focus will allow studies to assess the nature and scope of health problems in underserved communities, formulate hypotheses about the relationship of community dynamics and health problems as they relate to underrepresented populations, design targeted interventions aimed at addressing health disparities in specified communities and specific populations, and track the efficacy of outreach efforts that result from CBPR research in the community.
