Project Talk: How two family foundations boosted a researcher’s dream to address health disparities


Project Talk is a $3.5 million clinical trial funded in September 2020 by the National Institute of Minority and Health Disparities to investigate whether an end-of-life conversation game motivates African American participants to engage in advance care planning and to assess whether the game is well received and results in completion of advance directives. This article chronicles the impact of family philanthropy on the project and demonstrates the capacity of family philanthropy in general to advance health, healthcare and science.
