Pepper Center Pilot Projects provide $100,000 over two years.  While the mission of the Northwestern Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center is on managing multiple comorbidities in older adults, proposals related to other aspects of aging will be considered.  Up to five awards will be made, with awards beginning 8/1/2021.  More information
