AACN recently released a third call for applications for the All of Us Research Program Mini-Grant Awards. AACN member schools of nursing and their community partners who commit to increasing awareness of the All of Us Research Program, a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Program aimed at accelerating health research breakthroughs, can receive up to $10,000. The overall purpose of the program is to extend precision medicine to all diseases by building a national research cohort of one million or more U.S. participants.
AACN partnered with the National Institutes of Health to award $330,000 in grants to over 32 nursing schools across the country. The schools received funding through the AACN Mini-Grants Awards Program to raise awareness of All of Us Research Program with the end goal of increasing participation of underrepresented communities in biomedical research.
