The Hassenfeld Child Health Innovation Institute is now accepting applications for the 2020 Hassenfeld Child Health Innovation Awards. These awards, which are made possible through the generous support of the family of Alan Hassenfeld, help to stimulate innovation to further the goals of the Hassenfeld Institute:
- Improve the health of children, making the communities we serve among the world’s healthiest places for children and their families
- Address the issue of poverty and how it impacts child health
- Serve as a national and international model for what can be achieved in child health
- Train the next generation of child health leaders
For the 2020 Innovation awards, the Hassenfeld Institute is looking to partner with community organizations, including nonprofit groups and governmental entities (state, local, school departments, individual schools, etc.) to address critical maternal and child health issues in Rhode Island. Community organizations are invited to propose a project they would like to undertake in collaboration with the Hassenfeld Institute. Applications are due by 9 a.m. Friday, January 31, 2020.
