Call for Applications: Emerging Authors Program for Global Cardiovascular Disease Research

 

The Emerging Authors Program for Global Cardiovascular Disease Research is an opportunity for early and mid-career public health trainees and practitioners from low- and middle-income countries to receive scientific writing and publication mentorship from global cardiovascular disease experts. The program – a collaboration of the Lancet Commission on Hypertension Group, Resolve to Save Lives, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Hypertension League – aims to expand the evidence base on reduction strategies for cardiovascular disease and associated risk factors while increasing opportunities for investigators from low- and middle-income countries to contribute to the scientific literature.

 

Participating authors will receive guidance and support from subject matter experts to strengthen their scientific writing skills and navigate the writing and publication process. Mentors may provide guidance on defining a clear study aim, describing methods, presenting study results, discussing public health implications, and publishing.  

Previous program participants have published peer-reviewed cardiovascular disease prevention and management manuscripts across two special journal sections (see Special Section: Global Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Management).

 

When to apply?

- Applications are due by 11:59 pm Atlanta/EST on February 21, 2021.
