Apply For Funding: Physician and Public Awareness Proposals

PHYSICIAN AND PUBLIC AWARENESS FOCUS

The Foundation's goal in this funding category is to further the awareness and knowledge of the inherent dangers of untreated sleep disordered breathing, its symptoms, diagnosis and treatment with sleep specialists, primary care physicians, educators and the general public. Only programs that have wide outreach to a significant clinical or public population base will be considered. Institutionally focused CME programs will not be funded by the Foundation at this time.
