The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation turns 40 this year.
In recognition of that occasion, the Foundation established the RWJF Young Leader Award, which recognizes 10 leaders ages 40 or under for their exceptional contributions to improving the health of the nation. Each recipient receives $40,000. Learn more.
The Foundation also salutes five semifinalists, who were recognized by the awards panel for their accomplishments and promise as leaders in health and health care.
