Discovering New Ideas

A Culture of Health is a bold vision, demanding equally bold ideas to help us bring this vision to life. We look far and wide, to the cutting edge and abroad, to discover new ways to improve our nation's health.

Pioneering Ideas

We investigate novel approaches within and well beyond the field of health, and seek new relationships and fresh thinking that may accelerate our progress toward a Culture of Health. Throughout the year, we welcome Pioneering Ideas Brief Proposals that can help us anticipate the future and meet our nation's health challenges in unexpected ways.

Learning Across Global Borders

Knowing that good ideas have no borders, we examine promising solutions from around the world that may have exciting ramifications here at home. We explore transformations that have taken place abroad to improve health and create health equity, learning from these accomplishments to spark our imaginations and urge action here in the United States.
