GEDC Awarded New Grant by JAHF Board of Trustees

John A. Hartford Foundation

The John A. Hartford Foundation Board of Trustees approved grants totalling $12,350,005 for six initiatives that will spread age-friendly care focused on what matters to older adults and family caregivers, including in emergency departments and home-based care, and through advocacy and a new rural project.

One initiative, Geriatric Emergency Department 4.0: Accreditation, Dissemination, Sustainability and Evaluation ($4,027,565 for 3 years), will make emergency department care more age-friendly for older adults through three grants. One of these grants will be awarded to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, enabling them to continue supporting the Geriatric Emergency Department Collaborative (GEDC) as it aims to reach 10,000 emergency department clinicians with educational resources, consultation and training.
