APTR announces Acceleration of Prevention and Population Health Education grants for its member faculty at this critical time when universities are being challenged to educate students through distance-based formats. Acceleration grants are intended to expand and support education in the areas of community resilience and preparedness; health equity and social justice; and access to care by disseminating effective methods of integrating these topics into existing courses and curricula.

Responding to disease epidemics and improving the nation’s health requires a public health workforce that can apply prevention and population health principles, practice in interprofessional teams, and coordinate with other disciplines and sectors that impact health. The global and national response to the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the need for developing student competency in the areas of community resilience and preparedness; health equity and social justice; and access to care. Acceleration grants are intended to expand and support education in these areas by disseminating effective methods of integrating these topics into existing courses and curricula.

Applicants will describe how they will create, expand, or improve curricula or teaching materials that address any of the following topics: community resilience and preparedness; health equity and social justice; and access to care. Modification of existing courses and curricula should increase or deepen learning and teaching in these areas. .
