Grants to USA education providers to address the educational needs of workers in the healthcare sector. Funding is intended to support quality education within the focus area of stroke care. The goal of the program is to fund educational projects that are designed to improve patient care by focusing on the improved application of knowledge, competence, and performance among healthcare professionals.

Genentech supports grants for independent medical education that aim to improve patient care by focusing on the improved application of knowledge, competence, and performance among healthcare professionals. This mission is achieved by supporting quality independent education that addresses evidence-based, bona fide educational gaps in accordance with the ACCME, AMA, PhRMA Code, OIG, and FDA guidance.

Grant requests must identify unmet educational needs of a target audience and demonstrate how the program will address the unmet educational needs, and encourage the improvement of medicine and healthcare. The selection of medium and format should be commensurate with the educational needs, the audience, learning preferences, geography, content, and other factors that contribute to educational effectiveness. Responsibility and control over the selection, content, faculty, educational methods, materials, and venue for an independent medical education event belongs solely to the organizers of the event.

Stroke health disparities are widespread and pervasive throughout the world. There is an urgent need for health equity in the healthcare system in the United States, especially relating to stroke care. The American Stroke Association identified multiple barriers to health equity in stroke care including social determinants of health, structural racism and threats to rural health.

Genentech recognizes the need to support independent education for neurologists and the stroke care team to help in informing and educating the medical professional community about barriers created by health inequity and understanding how to change their current practices to reflect better healthcare for all. As such, Genentech seeks to support independent medical education for neurologists and the stroke care team that addresses health inequities and disparities in stroke care.
