A national initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation–Prescription for Health: Promoting Healthy Behaviors in Primary Care Research Networks–is a five-year program to develop, test, evaluate, and disseminate creative, practical strategies to promote healthy behaviors in primary care practices by targeting four behaviors: lack of physical activity, poor diet, tobacco use, and risky use of alcohol.  The goal of the program's second round of funding is to understand and measure the extent to which comprehensive strategies are effective in improving patients’ health behaviors, resulting in improved practice.  Proposals should focus on cues, tools, techniques, and incentives for improving the delivery, feasibility, reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance of health behavior change interventions in primary care practice.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall, no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, January 28, 2005.  Letters of intent should be limited to 2 pages and include an abstract which identifies the behaviors to be targeted and strategies to be applied, along with a broad-strokes estimate of the budget to be requested.

Amount: up to $300,000
   
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, January 28, 2005
   
Foundation Deadline: March 7, 2005
