The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to seek research applications that test innovative approaches to improve diabetes and obesity prevention and/or treatment in healthcare settings where individuals receive their medical care. Research applications should be designed to test practical and sustainable strategies to improve processes of care and health outcomes for individuals with or at risk of diabetes and/or obesity. The research should also focus on approaches with the potential to be broadly disseminated outside the specific setting where it is being tested. The goal of the research is to obtain results that will improve healthcare practice and inform healthcare policy for the prevention or management of these conditions. Therefore, interventions must be integrated into the existing healthcare structure and/or processes. The healthcare setting may not be used solely as a venue for recruitment.
