American Dental Association Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Program
2014 GKAS Community Leadership Development Institute
Over the past eleven years, the American Dental Association's Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Program has established itself in providing education and oral health care to nearly half a million underserved children annually. As GKAS enters its 12th year, the program’s focus has evolved to become a more comprehensive program, particularly through the provision of continuity of care and the establishment of dental homes for children.
From 2007-2010, the GKAS Promising Practices Symposium offered an opportunity for like-minded individuals to come together, learn from one another and share valuable resources regarding how to move existing dental care systems to the next level for America’s underserved children. In an effort to continue this experience and enhance the concept, in 2011 & 2012 the Symposium shifted to become the GKAS Community Leadership Development Institute (GKAS Institute). Selected participants have an opportunity to learn, in-person, how to initiate, expand and/or enhance a GKAS program. View past GKAS Community Leadership Development Institute Ambassadors.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, HuFriedy, Henry Schein Cares, and the ADA Foundation, the 2014 Community Leadership Development Institute will take place where GKAS first began – St. Louis. An estimated 650 underserved children will receive comprehensive care during the St. Louis GKAS Program which is scheduled to take place October 22-25, 2014.
Goal: The goal of the grant application is to execute a process whereby eligible applicants interested in expanding, enhancing, or beginning their GKAS programs can apply for funds to subsidize travel expenses associated with attending the GKAS Institute.
Grant Award: For this grant, up to ten travel grants will be given. The GKAS National Advisory Committee reserves the right to increase or decrease the number of awards given.
Eligibility Organizations: State (constituent) and local (components) dental societies of the ADA and/or community based organizations providing oral health care for underserved children during GKAS will be considered. Applicants must reside within the U.S. 50 states.
Candidates demonstrating their commitment and ability to begin a new GKAS program or enhance an existing one will be considered.
Candidate should have experience with managing/chairing an access to care event.
These candidates should hold a position in their organization that will allow them to effectively implement lessons learned during the GKAS Institute.
Applicants do not necessarily have to be a licensed dentist or hygienist.
Applicant will be asked to serve as a GKAS Ambassador during the GKAS Institute. The GKAS Ambassador will work the duration of the October 22-25, 2014 event in a variety of capacities depending on his/her particular interest and program goals. Examples of duties of an ambassador span from being a clinic escort, working at the check-in/check-out process, sterilization area, photography, triage area, education area, entertainment area, and more. The St. Louis GKAS Clinic will allow for the needs of the participants while allowing them to experience first-hand the workings of the clinic. Due to Missouri licensing rules, not all participants present will necessarily be working as clinical practitioners.
The deadline to return the application is Tuesday, April 29, 2014. Only applications completed online by this deadline will be considered. All applicants will be notified of the GKAS selection subcommittee’s decision the week of May 27, 2014. Please contact the Give Kids A Smile Team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding the GKAS Institute.
Call for Applications: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Round 13 of Grand Challenges Explorations
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is accepting applications for Round 13 of its Grand Challenges Explorations initiative, which seeks innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing global health and development problems. Great ideas come from everywhere, and grants have been awarded for over 900 projects in over 50 countries to date.
Proposals are being accepted through May 6, 2014. Visit www.grandchallenges.org to submit a simple, online, two-page application for the topics listed below.
Topics for Grand Challenges Explorations Round 13:
Measuring Fetal and Infant Brain Development: We seek better assessment tools for cognitive development and gestational age, which are critical for measuring the effectiveness of prevention and treatment strategies targeting children’s healthy growth and development and are appropriate for use in the communities in greatest need. This topic is being undertaken in partnership with Grand Challenges Canada’s Saving Brains initiative.
Integrating Community-Based Interventions: We seek new ideas to leverage an existing mass drug administration platform - for drug distribution efforts for one or more of five specific neglected tropic diseases - and to integrate this platform with another community-valued or community-needed health intervention or agricultural service, with the goal of increasing efficiency and impact.
Inciting Healthy Behaviors: We seek new solutions - targeting individuals, families, communities, health providers, or the health system - that promote health-seeking behaviors and that can make a difference in reducing morbidity and mortality and promoting healthy, productive lives.
Diarrhea and Enteric Dysfunction: We seek new ideas for tools, approaches, and models to support preclinical development of new agents for Acute Secretory Diarrhea and Environmental Enteric Dysfunction. We particularly seek approaches that recapitulate the pathophysiology of impaired gut function as it occurs in our target populations.
Innovations for Building Agricultural Development Programs: We seek new solutions to build effective feedback and accountability systems into agricultural development programs. We are looking for tools or approaches that enable farmers’ voices to be consistently heard in all project phases.
The Gates Foundation and an independent group of reviewers select the most promising proposals, and grants will be awarded within approximately five months from the proposal submission deadline. Initial grants are USD$100,000 each. Projects demonstrating potential will have the opportunity to receive additional funding up to USD$1 million.
