Equity-Focused Dissemination and Implementation Mini-Grants

These mini-grants provide up to $2,000 to support equity-focused dissemination and implementation (EQ-DI) research, a field of science that uses a health equity lens to examine the process by which scientific evidence is implemented in clinical settings and communities. EQ-DI prioritizes health equity in the conception of dissemination and implementation activities and evaluates equity as an important outcome of those activities.
