NNLM SEA Funding Announcement: All of Us Health Ambassador Award
The All of Us Research Program’s goal is to learn how differences between us might lead to different types of treatments. With a goal to have one million people participate in this study, researchers may use this information to improve the health for everyone. As part of a partnership with the All of Us Research Program, the Network of the National Library of Medicine, Southeastern/Atlantic Region (NNLM SEA) is pleased to offer the All of Us Health Ambassador Award.
Amount: Up to $19,000
Awards Available: 3
Application Deadline: Friday, July 31, 2020 at 11:00pm Pacific Time.
The purpose of the SEA All of Us Ambassador Award is to support libraries for projects that improve health information and digital literacy, improve access to, awareness of, and skills to locate high quality biomedical and health information, and improve understanding and importance in participation of clinical trials, including All of Us through a train-the-trainer model. As an ambassador, you may be asked to support additional outreach to help train and empower NNLM Network Members in your local community.
Potential Project Ideas
Project proposals should focus on the following project ideas:
- Purchasing web-accessible computers/tablets for libraries that will be used for offering trainings on NLM databases and NNLM professional development courses.
- Presenting training using one of the NNLM consumer health classes at local library professional development in-service meetings or library organizational events, or virtually.
- Training unaffiliated, minority, urban or rural health professionals and All of Us partners in effective use of electronic health information resources for evidence-based practice, with an emphasis on NLM databases and resources.
Preference will be given to libraries and organizations with established relationships with public libraries and should be mentioned within the proposal.
Projects must also provide awareness of All of Us, such as including the use of informational materials about All of Us in programming, events, classes and other activities offered as part of the project or distributing All of Us brochures to patrons. Standard informational materials will be provided to awardee at no cost. Applicants are encouraged to utilize resources available from the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network and, when possible, partner with other All of Us partners in the community. SEA staff will help connect you with potential All of Us partners.
SEA staff are available for consultations. Please email NNLM SEA to schedule an appointment.
