The deadline to apply is July 10th, 2019.
How to apply: Our requirement is simple. We want you to submit a 1-2 page essay, 1.5 spaced, detailing an initiative that you would like to see happen — were you a policy maker, healthcare entrepreneur, or public health worker — to prevent or delay one of the most pressing health issues facing Americans today.
An example is the CDC-Recognized DPP (Digital Diabetes Prevention Program), a nationwide initiative modeled after a 10-year longitudinal study that showed a healthy diet, more exercise, and 5-7% body weight loss could delay the onset of diabetes after showing the signs of diabetes and prevent the progression to diabetes of prediabetes by 58%! This insight has since become a nationwide initiative, covered by most health plans, medicaid plans, and medicare. It is making a true difference in the wellness and lives of those who are at risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
So, what’s the next great preventive health frontier?
