Leadership for Better Health

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s leadership programs are designed to extend the influence and impact of leaders working to build a Culture of Health.

Building a Culture of Health is a bold shift that relies on increasing equity and combating the effects of racism and poverty. It requires engagement among leaders who represent every sector and discipline, and communities with limited resources and opportunities. It demands recognition that health is greatly influenced by complex social factors—education, neighborhoods, transportation, income, and faith—in addition to health care.

 

Applications for RWJF's leadership development programs open January 12, 2018.
