BHeC seeks experts on chronic disease
A review team to assess proposals for tackling chronic disease in Bermuda is being sought by the Bermuda Health Council.
The BHeC announced last year that $2 million was available to fund brainstorming on tackling Bermuda’s high costs of non-communicable chronic disease, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. The maximum awarded for ideas submitted is $200,000.
The first round of suggestions has been approved, according to the council’s chief executive, Ricky Brathwaite.
Prospective members of the review panel will be required to work with a team and hold relevant knowledge or qualifications. A council statement said suggestions would be considered on a “continuous basis”.
But the Chronic Disease Innovation Programme is also being held to a timeline.
