Announcing ABC COVID-19 Innovation Awards

The Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC) is pleased to announce a call for applications to support COVID-19 projects. ABC’s Research Fund is supported, in part, by Amgen.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected African Americans and other racial and ethnic minority groups living in the United States, as well as Blacks worldwide. The Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC) continues its commitment to addressing this toll on minority communities through education, research, and advocacy. Improving access to care and thoughtful actions to address this crisis are important to address underlying cardiovascular health disparities that are, in part, rooted in structural discrimination and segregation. In an effort to identify solution-focused mechanisms aimed at mitigating the pandemic’s impact, ABC has established the Association of Black Cardiologists COVID-19 Innovation Awards.

Thus, ABC welcomes applications from individual(s) or organizations that satisfy one or more of the following:
  1. Novel targeted interventions or approaches at the community level aimed at preventing infection or decreasing the spread of the COVID-19 virus in black and Hispanic/Latin X communities.

  2. Incorporation of sustainable mechanisms to decrease infection spread.

  3. Partnerships with community-facing entities or organizations.

  4. Proposals that incorporate access to quality healthcare.

The Award

Six individual applications will be awarded: 4 for awards each totaling $25,000 and 2 awards each totaling $50,000 will be disbursed.

Awardees will be required to present their project and its results at an upcoming ABC meeting or webinar – date to be determined but within 12-16 months of the award date.

Visit the ABC website, to learn more about eligibility and submission requirements.

Deadline: July 28, 2020
