Happy Holidays from the RWJF Human Capital Blog!

Happy (almost) 2013, blog readers!

Last year we asked Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) leaders, scholars, grantees and alumni to outline their New Year’s resolutions for our health care system, and what they thought should be the priorities for action in 2012. The responses we received were inspiring and thought provoking, and we hope that—unlike that resolution to go to the gym!—many of them were realized.


But 2013 will be a new year. Our population is growing, becoming more diverse, and aging, and our health care system is changing to meet emerging needs. New research is being conducted, new models of care are being tested, and health policy continues to change at the state and federal levels.

We can only imagine what the coming year will hold, so we’ve again asked experts from the field to weigh in this holiday season to share their vision. Check back through early January to read their priorities for our health care system in 2013.

From all of us at the RWJF Human Capital portfolio, we wish you a very happy holiday season.
