Renal Staff Microgrants 2017 Open for Submissions

Got an idea that could make a difference in patient care?

rengrnts2Do you have an idea that just might work? We urge you to apply for a Renal Staff Microgrant by January 3, 2017. Help the Division of Nephrology make a difference in the care and lives of the patients in our clinics and dialysis centers.

The Division of Nephrology has $7,500 to fund up to three grants at each of our patient sites: Forest Park, Chromalloy and Center for Advanced Medicine. Your idea should look to help improve the ESRD Quality Improvement Program outcomes (you can find information on that here), but all proposals that seek to improve overall care are welcome.
