HEALTHY ACTIVE LIVING GRANTS

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2014-2015 Healthy Active Living Grants: Supporting Healthy Families! Each AAP chapter/pediatric residency program pair will work together to build partnerships with community organizations to develop and implement sustainable strategies to engage and support parents of young children through classes and/or home visits to establish healthy eating, activity, and sleep behaviors. This cycle's partnerships are:

  • Illinois Chapter and University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria
  • Louisiana Chapter and Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center
  • New York Chapter 2 and Nassau University Medical Center
  • New York Chapter 3 and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
  • Texas Pediatric Society and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center

Partnering AAP chapters and pediatric residency programs was piloted in a 2012-2013 grant cycle. This model demonstrated the potential to train pediatric residents to actively engage with their communities while empowering chapters to work closely with training programs in their state in a sustainable way to positively impact the health of children and their families.

The 2014-2015 Healthy Active Living Grants: Supporting Healthy Families are funded by the MetLife Foundation.
