SEPA Programs Since 1991
SEPA was created to encourage active biomedical and/or behavioral scientists to work as partners with educators, media experts, community leaders, and other interested organizational leaders on projects that improve student understanding of the health sciences in K-12 education, and increase the public's understanding of science. Since 1991, the program has been administered by the National Center for Research Resources, National Institutes of Health. To date, 150 SEPA awards have been distributed across the United States.
