-$1000 awarded to Dr. Stephen Charbonneau & Dr. Whitney Kiebel; Advisor Dr. Dale Woolridge (UofA) - The study was the result of an internal training module and assessing impact of this module.  If you recall, the grant had requested funding to support meetings (lunch/snacks) in the attempt to deliver this training to outside physician groups.  This is where the study failed.  To Whitney and Steve's disappointment, they could not get a set of docs together to sit in on this training.  (I'm sure you can relate on how hard it is to get a series of docs together).   For this reason, the $1k check was never used and never cashed.
