To make a shift as bold as building a Culture of Health—a shift that relies on increasing equity and combating the effects of racism and poverty—it is imperative that many of these leaders are from or working in communities with limited resources and opportunities. And to create change at every level of society, they must represent every sector and discipline, recognizing that people’s health is greatly influenced by complex social factors—education, neighborhoods, transportation, income, and faith—in addition to health care.
That vision is coming to life as the four new leadership programs announce their first year participants: 154 professionals from multiple fields and disciplines collaborating to find solutions to our nation's most persistent health challenges. See below for maps of the participants, and their places of work and study across the country.
