Children’s Healthcare Initiatives Supported
American Academy of Pediatrics: Community Access to Child Health Program
The Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Program, a national initiative of the American Academy of Pediatrics, is designed to improve access to healthcare by supporting pediatricians that are involved in community-based efforts to enhance the health of children. CATCH Planning and Implementation Grants of $5,000 to $12,000 are awarded to pediatricians and fellowship trainees to develop or implement innovative initiatives that increase children's access to medical homes and available insurance programs. (Grants of up to $3,000 are awarded to pediatric residents addressing the same issues.) The application deadline is July 31, 2014. Visit the American Academy of Pediatrics’ website to learn more about the CATCH Program.
