FAIMER is now inviting applications for the 2014 Projects That Work competition! FAIMER will sponsor a representative of up to five selected projects to attend the 2014 Network: Toward Unity for Health (TUFH) conference in Fortaleza, Brazil, November 19-23. Sponsorship includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee. Although registration for the conference is not yet open, watch the Network: TUFH website (www.the-networktufh.org) going forward for more information as it becomes available.
The Projects That Work initiative, now in its second year, is sponsored by FAIMER as part of the annual Network: TUFH conference. This year the Projects That Work competition will showcase projects that have been successfully addressing missions related to the 2014 conference theme, “Strengthening Health Professions Education as a Policy to Improve Health,” for three years or longer. The intent of the Projects That Work initiative is to recognize excellent projects that have succeeded beyond initial implementation and have had a significant impact on health, the community, or the school, as well as to encourage the development, implementation, and dissemination of more such projects.
Applications to Projects That Work must be submitted by June 30, 2014. To apply, click here.
