Resilience Roundtable: Taking Action to Build Stronger Communities

Join us June 1 – 2, 2016
Princeton, NJ

We are pleased to share information about the Resilience Roundtable, June 1 – 2, 2016 in Princeton, NJ. This conference is hosted by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and convened in collaboration with RAND Corporation.

RWJF has recently implemented a bold new vision to build a Culture of Health, where all in our diverse society are enabled to lead healthier lives, now and for generations to come. One of the key principles guiding Culture of Health is resilience science and practice. 

During the convening, researchers and practitioners from diverse sectors will contribute their expertise toward developing a shared agenda—that will be used to both advance the field of resilience science and practice, and guide RWJF’s future funding strategies in this important area. 

Please see the agenda (Word document) and read the discussion paper (PDF) prior to arriving in Princeton.
