NBCOT Continues Support for AOTF Grants and Scholarships

Earlier this year, NBCOT’s board of directors approved three years of continued support for AOTF’s Implementation Research Grants with a $1 million gift. This is in addition to our support for the Intervention Research Grant and Health Services Research Grant.
