Purpose

The Express Health Information Outreach Award will provide short-term funding for projects that improve health information literacy and increase the ability of consumers, caregivers, students, and other members of the public to find and use health information. Funds may also be used to improve healthcare professional access to, awareness of, and skills for locating high-quality biomedical and health information. Projects should focus on building partnerships, collaborating with local community groups, and other key groups to provide health information outreach projects to underrepresented populations in the region.
