NYAM Receives Important AHRQ Grant to Engage Communities in Public Health Decision Making

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) awarded NYAM’s Center for Evaluation and Applied Research (CEAR) a $197,673 grant for innovative research focused on promoting informed public health decision-making. The study, which will be conducted as a collaborative effort with the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Information and Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, will engage community members in deliberative processes intended to assist Maimonides in the selection of relevant health programming for its diverse service community.  The research will examine the impact of these deliberative processes on participant knowledge and perceptions of health issues and solutions.  It will also consider the outcomes of the deliberations and their value to Maimonides and its partners.  We anticipate that the findings will be relevant to a broad spectrum of care providers and communities, as they work together to improve the health of the public.
