From December 6-7, 2018, the RCCN hosted a workshop on achieving and sustaining behavioral change in older adults. Access the agenda, recordings from the livestream, and presentation slides from the workshop here.

The RCCN is seeking to fund two or more pilot or developmental projects that involve multiple NIA-sponsored research centers to foster new research in the area of Behavior Change to Benefit Older Adults including change in the behaviors of older adults, care givers, health care providers, health care delivery systems or neighborhoods. The RCCN has set aside $80,000 to fund at least 2 projects addressing this topic. Applications are due March 4, 2019 with awards announced by April 30, 2019.

Resources from the RCCN Workshop on Achieving and Sustaining Behavior Change to Benefit Older Adults are available here.

The recording of the conference call that was held to discuss this RFA is available here.
