The Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR) Healthy People Curriculum Task Force has released a call for applications for its Successful Practices Initiative. Applicants are invited to submit descriptions of successful practices that are advancing the teaching of prevention, population health and public health, and how they are supporting the Healthy People 2020 objectives that focus on education. The purpose of this project is to encourage the creation and dissemination of institutional case studies that describe the development of successful prevention, population health, and public health programs in graduate health professions education programs, as well as in two-year and four-year undergraduate institutions.

Applications that are submitted will be screened for further development into case studies. Those selected to submit a full case study will be awarded a Certificate of Excellence by APTR. The resulting compilation of successful practices will be housed online and linked to the Healthy People 2020 web site as a means to highlight innovative programs, approaches and systems.

The deadline for all applications is March 14, 2011.
