Woodside provides support to the Foundation’s Policy unit by engaging with policymakers and their staff and providing them with evidence-based research about RWJF programs in order to help inform their work on issues that impact the health of Americans. As part of this work, Woodside manages the Foundation’s Connect Project, a program that helps its grantees and partners build or enhance relationships with members of Congress and other policymakers. Woodside also manages the Foundation’s Strategic Communications Training Program, designed to help its grantees learn new skills and strategies for using communications to build the capacity of their programs.
