The AHRQ Post Doctoral Fellowship Program (National Research Service Award, #5T32HS000011-35) in the Center for Gerontology and Healthcare Research in the School of Public Health at Brown University is rooted in the premise that a multi-level, multi-disciplinary approach is the most appropriate one to adopt in studying how health services are delivered to meet the needs of individuals with chronic illness.
Brown University is seeking letters of intent for annual call for applications for $40K National Institute on Aging-funded pilot projects to generate preliminary study data necessary for investigators to prepare to develop or test interventions for persons living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) using embedded pragmatic methods.

Congratulations to this group for this best abstract award!
