The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is working to expand America’s cadre of leaders by helping them develop the skills and relationships they need to bring about meaningful change. Through our leadership programs, we are:
- Equipping doctors, nurses, and other health care providers to transcend their traditional health care roles, work together across sectors, and help address complex local health challenges;
- Enabling leaders in fields such as transportation, urban planning, and economic development to gain visibility and influence as local ambassadors for health;
- Convening leaders in business, public health and other fields to explore new opportunities to increase access to healthier products, and make investments that build healthier communities; and
- Supporting efforts of individual scholars, and cross-disciplinary research teams, to identify key barriers to health, and use research findings to spark community action.
Through these initiatives, we are working to build strong networks of leaders who reach well beyond the fields of health and health care, to give everyone the opportunity to live a healthier life.
