The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) hosted a free informational webinar for those interested in learning more about the upcoming second round of the NAM’s US-based Healthy Longevity Catalyst Award Competition

This webinar provides information for those interested in applying to the NAM’s U.S.-based Catalyst Awards, part of the broader Healthy Longevity Global Competition. The NAM issues Catalyst Awards for bold, new, potentially transformative ideas to improve people’s physical, mental, or social health and well-being as they age. Viewers learned more about what the NAM looks for in these applications and how the prize program is unique. Catalyst Awardees from a previous round of the competition shared their experiences applying for the award, describe their diverse projects (with a focus on innovation), and explained how the prize would help further their work.

Though recorded in 2021, the content from this webinar continues to be relevant for individuals pursuing a NAM Catalyst Award. For additional questions, please contact catalystawards@nas.edu.
