Proposed projects may include the development of innovative education tools, platforms and programs that will transfer health information and scientific advances in sleep and circadian biology to research scientists, health care providers, educators from diverse disciplines, and 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 and sustained implementation in other settings.
