The University of Washington’s Population Health Initiative awarded funding to seven teams that include School of Public Health (SPH) researchers in its latest round of grants. 

These grants are Tier 1 pilot research grants, which are meant to support researchers in laying an interdisciplinary foundation for a future project to generate proof-of-concept. 

The seven projects involving SPH researchers are: 

  • Exploring Multicultural and Multilingual Methods in Developing Dialog-Based Health Technologies 

  • Piloting a Strategy to Improve Pediatric Inpatient Guideline Adherence in Migori, Kenya 

  • PrEParing for the future: preferences for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis products and delivery models among cisgender men, transgender, and non-binary persons in Seattle, Washington 

  • Establishing a rural Food Equity Collaborative to increase healthy food retail options for Latinos in WA 

  • A Framework for Prioritizing Urban Green Space Protection and Restoration to Improve Health 

  • Development and Evaluation of a Culturally-informed Food Insecurity Screening Protocol with American Indian Adults: Evidence from Northern Navajo Medical Center 

  • Examining share pantry/refrigerator safety and potential as a hyper-local alternate means of food assistance in the Puget Sound
