CDC Packaging and Spreading Proven Pediatric Weight Management Interventions for Use by Low-Income Families
The purpose of this NOFO is to increase the availability and number of packaged effective pediatric weight management interventions (PWMI) that can be used by healthcare, community or public health organizations to serve low-income children and their caregivers. This will be achieved by having researchers take existing evidence based PWMI, and convert them into user-friendly “packaged” materials so that the PWMI can be replicated and pilot tested in real world settings. The demonstration will provide ongoing support to children and families through the PWMI and referral to community-based resources for healthy nutrition and physical activity behaviors. The long-term goal of this NOFO is to increase the access to and uptake of acceptable, effective, and packaged PWMIs by institutions that serve low-income children.
CDC solicitations are generally limited regarding the number of applications that may go forward in response to a specific solicitation.
If you wish to apply to a program that limits the number of applications allowed per institution, please email a one-page abstract about your proposal with a link to the program of interest to Cheryl Ridgeway email@example.com in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development with a cc to the Division of Sponsored Programs firstname.lastname@example.org at least 30 days in advance of the deadline. If we receive multiple abstracts in response to a given solicitation, a review will be conducted to select the applicant to submit on behalf of the University of Iowa.
