No.7 HEALTH GRANTS ALERT for Baltimore Community Based O
      Focus


      "... community-based health education, prevention, and early detection efforts aimed
      at fighting obesity. Health Literacy proposals must incorporate and/or demonstrate
      impact in one or more of the following: plain language approach to communications;
      public education and awareness programs; and/or training and education for health
      care professionals, staff, and patients".
      "… grassroots efforts that increase awareness of critical health initiatives through
      health walks, health fairs, and health education outreach."


      "...to test the effectiveness of interventions for the prevention and control of diabetes
      and obesity that have a high potential to be adopted, and sustained in applied health
      care settings. The approaches tested must be based on widely accepted interventions
      previously demonstrated to be efficacious in clinical trials."

      "… to develop and pilot test translational interventions for the prevention and control of
      diabetes and obesity that have a high potential to be adopted, and sustained in
      applied health care settings. Research must be based on widely accepted
      interventions previously demonstrated to be efficacious in clinical trials."

      "… NIMH intervention and services research is aimed at preventing or ameliorating
      mental disorders, emotional or behavioral problems, the co-occurrence of mental,
      physical and substance abuse problems, HIV infections, and the functional
      consequences of these problems across the life span.... the purpose of this [grant
      program] ... is to encourage research on 1) the development and/or pilot testing of
      new or adapted interventions, 2) the adaptation and/or pilot testing of interventions
      with demonstrated efficacy for use in broader scale effectiveness trials, or 3)
      innovative services research directions that require preliminary testing or development.

      "… to evaluate and improve the performance of organizations that deliver innovative
      interventions to MSM at high risk for HIV infection or transmission."



      "… to conduct rigorous, theory-driven research on the effects of recent legislative and
      regulatory changes affecting insurance coverage for drug abuse treatment services. "



      "… to increase our understanding of persistent HIV-1 infection in patients under highly
      active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART)... The emphasis ...is on the development of new
      ideas and approaches in HIV-1 persistence...that may directly inform future studies on
      the design of therapeutic strategies to achieve long term remission without treatment
      or a complete eradication of residual virus and complete cure for HIV infection and
      AIDS."
           "… to reduce alcohol-exposed pregnancies …"




           "… to reduce or eliminate housing-related health hazards and to promote housing that
           is safe, healthy, accessible and affordable."


           "...develop and implement evidence-based, field-initiated demonstration projects that
           promote child and youth safety and to provide resources and expertise to help
           communities develop effective public awareness strategies about youth safety."


           "… help juvenile participants released from residential confinement to successfully
           transition back into society ... demonstration projects to promote the safe and
           successful reintegration of individuals who have been incarcerated into the
           community."

           "… to support mentoring and other transitional services essential to reintegrating
           juvenile offenders into the community. The grants will be used for mentoring juvenile
           offenders during confinement, through transition back to the community, and post-
           release; transitional services to assist the reintegration of youth offenders into the
           community; and training in offender and victims issues."
           "… mentoring programs that offer a mixture of core services and engage youth with
           activities that enable them to practice healthy behaviors within a positive pro-social
           peer group. The target population should be youth at risk of gang activity, delinquency,
           and youth violence. This program should develop and strengthen protective factors
           against gang involvement and other problem behaviors."
           "… to build evidence for and strengthen the use of effective regulatory, legal, and
           policy solutions to improve public health…"


           "… reduce violence in specific communities such as those defined by race, ethnicity,
           tribe, gender, sexual identity, or rural/frontier location. Projects must be new,
           community-based, and culturally appropriate, reflecting how language skills,
           significant cultural differences, education, income, and discrimination affect health
           outcomes. Community members should be engaged in planning and leadership."
