The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars program provides two years of support to postdoctoral scholars at all stages of their careers to build the nation’s capacity for research and leadership to address the multiple determinants of population health and contribute to policy change. The program is based on the principle that progress in the field of population health depends upon collaboration and exchange across disciplines and sectors. Its goal is to improve health by training scholars to:
- investigate the connections among biological, genetic, behavioral, environmental, economic, and social determinants of health; and
- develop, evaluate and disseminate knowledge, interventions, and policies that integrate and act on these determinants to improve health.
