Editors' Introduction

With assets of approximately $8 billion, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is the nation’s fifth largest foundation. To carry out its simple but daunting mission of improving the health and health care of all Americans, the Foundation strives to foster innovation, develop ideas, disseminate information, and enable a wide range of committed people to devote their energies to improving the nation’s health and well-being. This year’s Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Anthology discusses the Foundation's ongoing initiatives to improve health and health care.
