This annual Anthology of original articles about Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grants and programs captures and conveys the experiences, findings and lessons learned from a wide selection of the programs that we fund which tackle some of today's most critical health care issues.
The Anthology series reflects the Foundation's commitment to sharing knowledge resulting from our grantmaking with those who can use and benefit from it. Written for policy-makers and practitioners, as well as interested members of the public, the series offers valuable lessons for leaders and educators developing plans for the coming years.
This issue of the Anthology focuses on areas such as basic health care for Americans of all ages, improving services for people with chronic illnesses, and reducing the harm caused by substance abuse.
