Elizabeth Merwin RO1 Application Submission

Kudos to Elizabeth Merwin and her entire team for the submission of their NIH RO1 application entitled “Reducing Health Disparities for SMI Medicare Disabled.” This proposal requests funding for four years with a start date of July 1, 2014.

Excess morbidity and mortality in the SMI population is the result of self-care failures and inadequate prevention and health care. Understanding these inequities in Social Security disabled, SMI Medicare recipients under 65 years, a vulnerable and understudied subgroup, will inform design of early and more effective interventions to ensure changes in health behaviors or services that reduce morbidity and mortality.

Thank you to all those who gave their time and expertise in guiding the application process as well as to all those who helped to prepare for this submission.
