The overall goal of the 2015-2016 Brancati Center Pilot Research Grant Program is to support research to reduce health disparities in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes in Baltimore City. The center seeks to fund novel but mature research plans that have potential to provide convincing data that will either offer ways to immediately improve community-based care or garner external funding to support more definitive work in diabetes care in populations at particularly high risk for the disease.
This pilot research program will complement an ongoing Brancati Center diabetes prevention and management community partnership-based service program and an educational training program, both within Hopkins and in the community. Two awards of $25,000, each for one year, will be made.
