CDC  State Public Health Approaches to Addressing Arthritis

CDC solicitations generally limit 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 in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development with a cc to the Division of Sponsored Programs  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. 

This 5-year funding opportunity is intended to leverage existing partnerships, systems and resources to establish complementary community and healthcare provider approaches to improve arthritis management and reduce arthritis burden. The applicant is to sustainably disseminate and thereby increase the availability of and participation in CDC-recommended AAEBIs, adopt innovative and systems-based approaches that will help establish or enhance healthcare provider patient counseling about PA, including walking, and referral to physical activity AAEBIs and promote state level walking initiatives addressing the unique needs of adults with arthritis. In addition to activities addressing the applicant's target adult population, the applicant is expected to engage underserved adult populations in the state to address health disparities. Successful applicants are expected to be those with direct access to a sizeable percentage of the state population and who possess the capacity to carry-out activities that will have measurable, statewide impact on arthritis outcomes and associated health behaviors. This NOFO is expected to result in awards for 12-15 state programs addressing arthritis management using the strategies and approaches described throughout the NOFO
