New York State Health Foundation Request for Proposals (RFP) Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Healthy Food, Healthy Lives; Consumer Empowerment; and Veterans' Health

Funding is available through a New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) Request for Proposals (RFP): Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Healthy Food, Healthy Lives; Consumer Empowerment; and Veterans’ Health. Many organizations across the State are doing smart, innovative work that is relevant to NYSHealth’s priority areas of Healthy Food, Healthy Lives and Empowering Health Care Consumers and its focus area on Veterans’ Health. These organizations should be elevating their work and informing key stakeholders at conferences and other convenings in New York and nationally. Yet, because of a lack of resources, they are often unable to do so.

Through this RFP, NYSHealth will sponsor community-based organizations, health departments, and other low-resource organizations to attend and present at local, State, and national conferences—both in person and online—related to these funding areas. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Pfizer: Local Level Educational Grants Program to Increase Awareness & Understanding of Transthyretin Amyloid Cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM)

Deadline: Applications accepted on a rolling basis

Amount/Duration: Individual projects requesting up to $10,000 will be considered for small local/community programs. Individual projects requesting up to $20,000 will be considered for a large local/community program.

Eligibility: The following may apply: medical, dental, nursing, allied health, and/or pharmacy professional schools; healthcare institutions (both large and small); professional associations and medical societies; medical education companies; and other entities with a mission related to healthcare professional education and/or healthcare improvement. If the project involves multiple departments within an institution and/or between different institutions/organizations/associations. all institutions must have a relevant role and the requesting organization must have a key role in the project. For projects offering continuing education credit, the requesting organization must be accredited.

About: Projects that will be considered for Pfizer support will include local/community activities that focus on improving the care of patients by:

  • Educating [HCPs] to increase awareness and enable appropriate patient identification by closing knowledge gaps in disease epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and emerging treatment paradigms.
  • Addressing barriers to appropriate diagnosis and strategies that reduce burdens for patients and providers along the pathway to appropriate diagnosis
  • Exploring strategies that empower patients to play an active role in understanding TTR amyloidosis and decision making regarding available diagnostic and treatment options
  • Increasing awareness of the changing epidemiology of TTR amyloidosis with a focus on the prevalence of hereditary ATTR and wild-type ATTR subtypes as the science continues to evolve
  • Increasing awareness of at risk and undiagnosed populations with TTR amyloidosis with a focus on improving strategies that facilitate the appropriate diagnosis of patients early in the disease course before overt cardiomyopathy has ensued [e.g. populations with electrical disturbances, valvular disease, orthopedic manifestations, and cardio-oncology diseases (i.e. Light Chain Amyloidosis)]
  • Addressing geographic and racial healthcare disparities
  • Supporting the development of cardiac amyloid centers that provide leadership, best practices, support and/or training of HCPs within a multidisciplinary team environment in order to improve the quality of care for cardiac amyloidosis patients.
