ADAF Research Grant

The ADA Foundation is offering a research grant focusing on "Lifestyle Interventions for Childhood Overweight and Obesity Prevention." The deadline to apply is July 1.

The one-year grant of up to $35,000 is available for a research project that explores lifestyle interventions to reduce the risk of childhood obesity. Strategies should focus on nutrition and physical activity and be culturally and developmentally appropriate for children. The ADA Foundation Research Endowment was established by the contributions of ADA members and friends to support food and nutrition research by ADA members.

ADAF encourages submission of applications that support formative work or a pilot study that can be used in a much larger grant that would explore lifestyle interventions which can reduce the risk of development of childhood overweight and obesity by focusing on nutrition and physical activity.

The preferred research is formative work or a pilot study for the preliminary development or testing of the feasibility of a lifestyle intervention including focus groups to obtain input on the intervention components, or the testing of data collection instruments and methodology. This formative work or the pilot study could serve as the basis for a future grant proposal focused on conducting a larger study in a randomized controlled trial. Interventions proposed through this request for proposal should be based on a theoretical framework that could include behavioral and counseling theories and strategies. The preferred target population is children in preschool through high school.

Application and information. Or contact Beth Labrador, 312/899-4821.
