The Amy Roberts Health Promotion Research Award was established to assist young investigators interested in health promotion. Applications for the 2013 Award of $5,000 are now being accepted. Proposals should promote health and influence well-being through behavioral modifications such as exercise, nutrition, stress reduction, or smoking cessation. The award will be used for research by young investigators including a summer research project (for medical students the stipend is identical to the Dean's Summer Research Program). Eligible candidates must be affiliated with the Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) or sponsored by a MWRI member, at the beginning of their careers (high school through faculty appointment of three years or less) and studying health promotion and well-being. MWRI investigators are encouraged to sponsor a high school, college, medical or graduate student or other trainee such as a resident or fellow. In the case of a student or trainee sponsored by a MWRI member, the proposal should be prepared by the student/trainee with the assistance of the sponsor.
The Amy Roberts Health Promotion Research Award will be presented May 31, 2013 during the 2013 Research Day in Reproductive Biology and Women's Health at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC. Application forms and instructions may be found on the MWRI website http://www.mwrif.org/435/amy-roberts-health-promotion-research-award
