a Culture of Health (P4A), has launched its first call for proposals to help build an evidence base for
policies that can lead to a Culture of Health. P4A seeks to engage long-standing health and healthcare
researchers, as well as experts from fields that include housing, education, transportation, and the built
environment, who have not previously worked in the public health field. The research funded under this
call for proposals should inform the significant gaps in our knowledge about policies that can improve
population health and well-being and increase health equity. Deadline: March 15, 2016.
