Description

In summer of 2017, our team of DrPH students taking the Public Health Funding and Grants course assisted the Hearts and Hands Clinic in securing a $50,000 grant from the Healthcare Georgia Foundation to expand the diabetes care and management program. The goal of our service-learning activity was to write a grant proposal to broaden the current abilities of the clinic to include an evidenced-based Team Care approach with a behavioral health component that has high quality and low cost to underserved individuals within Bulloch County. The grant application was funded in fall 2017.

Engaging in a service-learning activity not only taught us how to write various components of a grant, but also helped us understand why certain grant applications are funded. This type of learning is not taught in the classroom, and we are grateful for the experience to have a local impact on our own community.
