The Kansas Health Foundation Capacity Grant is administered through KAMU to build the capacity of Kansas Safety Net Clinics in assessment, counseling and referrals related to tobacco cessation and overweight/obesity as well as addressing diabetes control,  cervical cancer screening and childhood immunization rates in the Federally Qualified Health Centers.  In 2013, additional funds were awarded to the clinics as mini-grants to fund a standardized approach in educating the healthcare staff in understanding tobacco use and weight issue of the Kansans they serve.  The mini-grant element of the project contracts with the Kansas University Research Institute and engages the expertise of Dr. Kimber Richter and her colleagues at the University of Kansas Medical Center Department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health in Kansas City Kansas.  Educational materials are now available on the KAMU public website.
