The grant’s stated purpose is to stimulate development of innovative, well-validated education tools, platforms and programs that will transfer health information and scientific advances in sleep and circadian biology to research scientists, health care providers and educators, to specific populations including youth, older adults, women, racial and ethnic minorities and veterans. Projects should draw upon cutting-edge education, knowledge transfer or social marketing models and must include analytic plans for the assessment of program efficacy and plans for adoption nd sustained implementation in other settings.
