Tell us how you will use what you have learned:
  • I watched the Introduction to Proposal Writing video. I loved the tips on finding the right fit and tailoring the proposal to the funder.
  • Thanks for highlighting resources from the Catalyst Center. I can't believe it's been so long since I've been on their websites...just too much to keep up on. But this was a good reminder of the CSHCN services they offer. Important stuff.
  • I looked at video #4 Incorporating Partners and will better understand the healthcare debate as a result of this resource. Thinking about FFS and P4P was really interesting.
