DEUCE: Disparity Elimination Using Care and Exercise - Grant

September 21, 2006 01:15 PM

In an age where Americans seem to be focusing on slimming down and finding healthier lifestyles, the issue of health disparity is still a major concern in the multicultural community.  Obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension are all prevalent in the African American, Hispanic and Asian communities.  It is with this in mind that the United States Tennis Association and the USTA Tennis and Education Foundation have partnered to establish “DEUCE”, working toward health “Disparity Elimination Using Care and Exercise.”  A new initiative designed to promote better health, fitness and wellness through care and exercise in an effort to eliminate the health disparity that exists within the minority community.

The 2006 DEUCE grants are now available. Previous 2006 DEUCE grant recipients are not eligible for this cycle. All DEUCE grant applications must be received by the USTA Office of Diversity by October 31, 2006.
