Healthy Habits: Timing for Developing Sustainable Healthy Behaviors in Children and Adolescents

Due Date: 
September 8, 2014

How can we encourage young people to adopt--and keep--healthy behaviors? The National Institute of Nursing Research and several other organizations within the National Institutes of Health will fund research projects that aim to (1) identify the ways young people are influenced to have healthy habits, and/or (2) promote positive sustainable health behaviors in children from birth to age 18. The types of behaviors may include:

  • healthy sleep patterns
  • self-regulation strategies
  • adaptive decision-making in risk situations
  • dental hygiene
  • diet
  • physical activity
  • healthy relationships

This funding opportunity is open through September 8, 2014. See the full funding opportunity announcement for more information and application deadlines.
