Funding Opportunity for CBOs

Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA) seeks community-based organizations (CBOs) interested in designing, in partnership with local teaching hospitals, immersion training opportunities for primary care residents. Through this partnership, participating CBOs will have the opportunity to ensure that providers can make informed referrals for patients based on their social needs. Participating residents will gain a comprehensive understanding of the CBO mission and experience the important link between social needs and health.

HOW WILL THIS CBO IMMERSION TRAINING WORK?

GNYHA will fund CBOs to develop a 1-2 day training for residents that includes the following components:

Defined learning objectives
• Orientation to the community served by the CBO
• Opportunities for resident interaction with CBO clients
• Hands-on learning activities for residents (tours, group meetings, direct observation)

The training must take place at the CBO location.

A formal request for proposals to CBOs interested in developing immersion training programs for residents will be available in summer 2017. To stay informed about this funding opportunity, please email Amy Liu (aliu@gnyha.org).

For specific questions about the project, please contact Carla Nelson (cnelson@gnyha.org) or Anu Ashok (aashok@gnyha.org).

This work is being funded by a grant from the New York State Health Foundation.
