  • CDC Prevention Research Center Program - Special Interest Projects (SIPs)

    Each year the CDC releases a group of Special Interest Projects (SIPs) through the Prevention Research Center (PRC) Program. Applications are required to go through the UAB PRC – the Center for the Study of Community Health – for administrative purposes.

    The 2018 Special Interest Projects:

    SIP 18-001 Targeting Treatment Gaps: Describing When, How Quickly, And Why Persons with Epilepsy Are Referred For Specialty Care -- Findings from this study can inform health system interventions that can facilitate more appropriate and timely diagnosis and treatment to optimize health outcomes in people with epilepsy. Health system interventions based on the findings from this project may reduce barriers and speed up the diagnosis and the appropriate treatment of epilepsy so that patients with epilepsy receive the best available care.

    SIP 18-002 Effect of Survivorship Care Plans on Cancer Survival -- This project will help improve care for cancer survivors by determining the health impact of survivorship care plans.

    SIP 18-003 Enhancing Surveillance of Fluorosis -- This project can improve the measurement of dental fluorosis. In addition, findings could guide development of new examination protocols and innovative or new technology that may be more valid and reliable.

    Only one application per SIP per PRC is allowed. If you are interested to pursue this opportunity, please contact Mary Evans at mevans@uab.edu.

    The Letter of Intent to apply is due from the Center for the Study of Community Health to CDC on 1/22/17; the deadline for getting LOI information to UAB CSCH for this letter is 1/19/2017.
