Grant writing is the topic of a workshop offered by the Illinois Rural Health Association 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday July 25 in the Telehealth Conference Room (Suite 200) at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, 320 E. Carpenter, Springfield.
The workshop for program/project planners, managers, grant writers and administrators will be presented in Springfield to four other locations across the state via videoconference. The off-site locations are Mendota Community Hospital, Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Paris Community Hospital and Marshall-Browning Hospital in DuQuoin.
During the day-long workshop, participants will learn the basic fundamentals of grant writing including developing the key components of a grant proposal and program plan, writing to the rules and guidelines of a specific grant program, setting measurable goals and objectives, and developing an implementation plan.
Presenters are Jim Bono, associate dean for business development and administrative affairs for the College of Pharmacy at the University of Illinois at Chicago; and Shirley Longlett, assistant professor of family and community medicine, and Deborah Seale, director of telehealth programs and assistant professor of information and communication sciences, both at SIU.
