Grants of up to $10,000 and grants of up to $20,000 to USA healthcare institutions and IHEs including medical, allied health, nursing, and pharmacy professional schools for educational projects that increase understanding and awareness of Transthyretin Cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM).

Projects that will be considered for Pfizer support will focus on improving the care of patients by:

    • Educating [HCPs] to increase awareness and enable appropriate patient identification by closing knowledge gaps in disease epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and emerging treatment paradigms.
    • Addressing barriers to appropriate diagnosis and strategies that reduce burdens for patients and providers along the pathway to appropriate diagnosis
    • Exploring strategies that empower patients to play an active role in understanding TTR amyloidosis and decision making regarding available diagnostic and treatment options
    • Increasing awareness of the changing epidemiology of TTR amyloidosis with a focus on the prevalence of hereditary ATTR and wild-type ATTR subtypes as the science continues to evolve
    • Increasing awareness of at risk and undiagnosed populations with TTR amyloidosis with a focus on improving strategies that facilitate the appropriate diagnosis of patients early in the disease course before overt cardiomyopathy has ensued [e.g. populations with electrical disturbances, valvular disease, orthopedic manifestations, and cardio-oncology diseases (i.e. Light Chain Amyloidosis)]
    • Increasing awareness of bone radiotracer scintigraphy as a noninvasive alternative to invasive endomyocardial biopsy for the appropriate diagnosis of TTR cardiac amyloidosis in select patients
    • Supporting the dissemination of information related to the pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic management of ATTR-CM
    • Addressing geographic and racial healthcare disparities
    • Addressing challenges to appropriate diagnoses and caring for patients during an era of increased telehealth utilization
    • Supporting the development of cardiac amyloid centers that provide leadership, best practices, support and/or training of HCPs within a multidisciplinary team environment in order to improve the quality of care for cardiac amyloidosis patients.

    Target Audience: General Cardiologists, Heart Failure Nurses, Heart Failure Specialists, Echocardiographers, Nuclear Cardiologists, Primary Care Physicians in the Local Setting
