Novel approaches and inspired collaborations are necessary to identify ways to measure and reward more equitable health outcomes. PTEC is particularly focused on solutions for conditions that disproportionally affect racialized communities (Black, Latinx, Asian, and Native American). These conditions include cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders, vaccine equity, and cancer.
3 grants of $50,000 to support project-related costs
- Based in United States or US territories
- Applicants must be research teams comprised of research institutions (academic or nonacademic), healthcare providers, and/or community-based partners. Research teams from multiple organizations must designate a primary applicant responsible for grant stewardship. Awards will not be granted to individual researchers.
- Must examine health inequity within the US healthcare system. Projects proposing independent or comparative study of other healthcare systems are excluded
- Proposals should examine systemic racism as a cause of inequity in the United States healthcare system, and focus on cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, vaccination, or cancer.
- They strongly encourage proposals that also examine intersectional characteristics that increase health inequity including age, disability, or LGBTQ+ identities.
- Proposals investigating the connection between other disease states (e.g., autoimmune illness, mental illness) are also encouraged, as long as they demonstrate a connection to cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders, cancer, or vaccination.
