Slater and Gordon health grants open

Invitations are being invited for this year’s Slater and Gordon Health Projects and Research Fund grants.

The law firm opened its 2017 grants applications process on July 3 and will close them on 17 August.

AMA members have been invited to apply for eligible projects.

Small grants of up to $3,000 are available to support the continuing education of medical and allied health professionals seeking to enhance their expertise in caring for and treating patients or clients in these areas.

The Fund also provides grants of up to $25, 000 to eligible not-for-profit organisations in Australia and the UK that focus on illness and prevention and the improvement of treatment and care for people with: an asbestos related disease; a occupational caused cancer; or significant disability caused by catastrophic spinal cord or brain injury.

The Fund has provided $300,000 in grants for medical research and health projects since it was established in 2014.

The Fund was built on the Slater and Gordon Asbestos Research Fund, which provided $1.4 million towards education, medical research, and other projects designed to improve the treatment of people who have an asbestos related disease.

Further details on the grant should be directed to the Manager of Secretariat, Ms Suzy Mallet on 03 8644 8466 or researchfund@slatergordon.com.au
