NIH has released a new Funding Opportunity

NIH has released a new Funding Opportunity for research into the implementation of effective non-opioid interventions for chronic pain management in rural and remote populations. The NIH’s Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) initiative to speed scientific solutions to the national opioid public health crisis, is intending to commit $5.7M in FY2023 to this effort, which will result in five to six awards. The FOA requires partnerships with health care systems or organizations and community partners and encourages links to key rural partners such as State Offices of Rural Health, State Rural Health Associations, and Area Health Education Centers.
