There’s only a month left to apply for the new SVS Foundation grant program for our community practice members and designed at improving community health.
Applications are due March 1 for the new Community Awareness and Prevention Project Grant, intended to help members in community practice environments conduct projects that address wellness and disease prevention and emphasize patient education, public awareness or risk assessment.
Awardees will receive up to $10,000 for an innovative, community-based initiative. Priority will go to projects that will benefit under-served areas or that include community partnerships.

The new program complements the Foundation’s expanded mission, which includes not only basic research but also increased public awareness about vascular disease and treatments and efforts to improve patient vascular care.
