Independent Grants for Learning & Change (IGLC) Track 2 - Call for Grant Applications (CGA): Role of Key Nutrients and Dietary Supplements for Healthy Skin Appearance

Funding Agency:
Pfizer Inc.

The mission of Pfizer Independent Grants for Learning & Change (IGL&C) is to partner with the global healthcare community to improve patient outcomes in areas of mutual interest through support of measurable learning and change strategies. “Independent” means that the projects funded by Pfizer are the full responsibility of the recipient organization. Pfizer has no influence over any aspect of the projects and only asks for reports about the results and the impact of the projects in order to share them publicly. 

Through this CGA we encourage organizations to submit grant requests that, if funded, will support education in a specific disease state, therapeutic area, or broader area of educational need. 

It is our intent to support projects that focus on increasing the awareness and understanding of the science and the role of key nutrients and dietary supplements for healthy skin appearance.

Areas of special interest include increasing healthcare provider knowledge around assessing dietary supplement benefits for patients and understanding biologic plausibility and effective patient-provider communication.

Target learner audiences include: dermatologists, cosmetic and plastic surgeons and any healthcare professionals involved in the care or treatment of patients with skin aging.

All activity types will be considered through this CGA including live events, satellite symposia, workshops, online courses, print materials, other enduring materials. An activity taking place alongside a dermatology conference, such as the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting is of particular interest.

Deadline: Nov. 11, 2016
