The IMPROVE Awardee Workshop
March 9 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
In Fiscal Years (FY) 2020 and 2021, NIH awarded over $20 million to support 58 projects through the Implementing a Maternal health and PRegnancy Outcomes Vision for Everyone (IMPROVE) initiative to rapidly improve understanding of and mitigation strategies for the leading causes of pregnancy-related and pregnancy-associated morbidity, from pregnancy through up to one year postpartum.
The IMPROVE Awardee Workshop brings together researchers and clinicians supported by NIH IMPROVE funding in FY2020 and FY2021 to share their work and progress to date. Workshop participants will:
- Share research results and lessons learned from their IMPROVE projects
- Identify common themes and highlight shared research gaps and opportunities that can complement ongoing disease-specific work across NIH and collaborating organizations
- Further define the needs of pregnant and postpartum individuals to reduce preventable causes of morbidity and mortality
