Call for Applications
The NN/LM Middle Atlantic Region (MAR), as part of its outreach and library improvement programs and its Strategic Program Plan for Network Members, is accepting applications from MAR full and affiliate network members for Outreach to Unaffiliated Health Professionals Awards, which will encourage development of local programs linking targeted unaffiliated health professional groups to health information.
More information on the award and how to apply can be found below and on http://nnlm.gov/mar/funding/outreachhealthpro.html
MAR continues its commitment to serve unaffiliated health professionals with these awards, which will encourage development of local programs linking targeted unaffiliated health professional groups to health information. Members may support unaffiliated health professionals with reference service, training in the effective use of resources (such as PubMed or MedlinePlus), document delivery, Loansome Doc, direct access to electronic resources, or other services.
Priority will be given to projects which support MAR’s outreach priorities of the following unaffiliated health professionals:
- Nursing home/long term care professionals
- Private practice physicians
- Nurse practitioners
- Public health departments
- Federally Qualified Health Centers (health clinics for the underserved)
In addition, priority will be given to projects which support MAR’s additional outreach priorities:
- Target groups: seniors, Hispanic populations, faith-based organizations, low-income/literacy populations.
- Partner priorities: senior centers, nonprofit organizations, schools, and public health departments
- Health disparities such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, cancer, STDs/HIV/AIDS, infant mortality, asthma and uninsured individuals
Partnerships between MAR network members and other community, health, senior, and diversity organizations are strongly encouraged.
Three awards up to $30,000 each are available. Each award will be funded on a cost reimbursement basis as a formal subcontract.
If you have questions or require assistance, contact Arpita Bose, MAR Outreach and Communications Coordinator, 212-263-4176 or email@example.com. Awards will be announced on the MAR discussion list, MARL as well as the MARquee.
