American Academy of Dermatology Association’s State Advocacy Grant Program
The purpose of the American Academy of Dermatology Association’s (AADA) State Advocacy Grant Program is to provide financial assistance to state dermatology societies for the advancement of their health policy initiatives, including state lobbying expenses.
Grants are allocated on an annual basis through an application process. Completed applications are reviewed by the AADA State Policy Committee and ultimately approved by the AADA Council on Government Affairs, Health Policy and Practice (GAHPP Council).
State societies applying for a grant must submit an application and all required supporting materials by the established deadline.
State advocacy grants are not guaranteed sources of funding and successful grants are not intended to be an ongoing source of funding for state society advocacy efforts.
Please note priority review will be given to state societies that are applying for the first time or have only received one prior grant award. State societies that have received two or more previous grants will not be eligible for funding consideration until all other received applications are evaluated, except at the discretion of the State Policy Committee in the case of extenuating circumstances.
Through the review process, the State Policy Committee may request additional information or a conference call with state society applicants to address any questions or concerns about their proposals.
The 2014 application deadline is September 30, 2013.

Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging 2014 Robert E. Henkin Government Relations Fellowship
It is essential for any highly regulated profession to have leaders who have an understanding gained first-hand of the challenges that the practice of nuclear medicine faces. In America today, we produce a great number of skilled professionals. But too few of these individuals provide society with statesmanlike leadership and guidance in the public affairs arena.
The Robert E. Henkin Fellowship is designed to provide young professionals in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging direct personal exposure to government relations activities of the SNMMI as well as the state and federal legislative and regulatory process. The F ellowship is designed to provide gifted and highly motivated young nuclear and molecular imaging professionals with first- hand experience in the process of health policy development. For the purpose of this proposal, a young professional shall be defined as a resident or fellow (physician), a scientist or technologist who has completed their training within the last 10 years. Professionals who have been in the field for longer than ten years are not eligible.
Applications for the 2014 program will be accepted starting on September 1, 2013 with a closing date for submission of December 31, 2013. The Fellow will be selected at the SNMMI Mid-Winter meeting in Palm Springs, CA, with the Fellowship week to occur at a time mutually agreed upon between February 2014, and June 30, 2014. Expenses for the week will be paid and a stipend provided.
