The PORTES FOUNDATION Call for Proposals
The Portes Foundation, in association with The Institute of Medicine of Chicago (IOMC), is soliciting proposals for research projects in health promotion, and disease prevention. Please share this letter with colleagues who may be interested.
Historically the Portes Foundation has funded grants in the range of $25,000 to $50,000. In general grants are awarded for one year projects. We invite proposals that explore research or implementation ideas important in health promotion and disease prevention. These projects may be investigative in etiologic factors, preventive measures, primary and secondary prevention screening, and education. Projects in patient education or health professions education will also be considered. All projects must include a complete and thorough evaluation component. The IOMC awards are not necessarily given each year, but only when nominees are presented who are meritorious.
