CPTI Funding Opportunities
HEALTHY ACTIVE LIVING GRANTS
Call for Proposals will open mid-July.
Research suggests that interventions that work directly with parents from the earliest stages of child development are effective ways to engage and support families in healthy active living. The emphasis of this grant opportunity is for project teams comprised of pediatric residency programs, AAP chapters, and community organizations to facilitate healthy active living by enhancing parenting skills to address modifiable behaviors (such as feeding, sleeping, and activity habits) that influence obesity and overweight in infants through preschool children.
Goals of this grant opportunity include:
- Creating effective and sustainable models for community-based approaches to obesity prevention
- Supporting pediatricians to work in their communities to address childhood obesity
- Strengthening the relationship between local AAP chapters and residency programs to maximize project sustainability and local dissemination
- Sharing accurate and consistent messages about healthy feeding, sleeping, and activity with parents, families, and community leaders to impact child health at the local level.
