Seven research projects have been awarded a total of $87,500 through the Newfoundland and Labrador Healthy Aging Research Program (NL-HARP), funded by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. This opportunity, administered by the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Applied Health Research, supports research that aligns with the Provincial Healthy Aging Framework. We congratulate this year’s winners.
Health system decision makers in NL recognize the burden that Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) places on both the individual and on the healthcare system. By focusing on prevention, they hope to improve population health in the province and to reduce the costs required to manage this chronic disease. In an effort to help decision makers develop prevention strategies based on reliable evidence, the Contextualized Health Research Synthesis Program (CHRSP) identified and reviewed the best available scientific and economic evidence on the clinical and cost effectiveness of approaches that aim to reduce T2D incidence.
