The national Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is looking for candidates to apply to their Culture of Health leadership development program. Each year, Culture of Health Leaders welcomes up to 40 new leaders. They are individuals from any ﬁeld, profession, or sector who want to advance health and equity.
Mark your calendars – applications for this opportunity are opening January 11. Let’s get some ambitious West Virginians at the table for this opportunity!
From the organizers:
Culture of Health Leaders are people working in every ﬁeld and profession who want to use their inﬂuence to advance a Culture of Health—one that enables everyone in America to live longer, healthier lives.
This kind of leader isn’t defined by a fancy title or a corner office. They’re working on the ground, applying their skills and experience to solve urgent issues that impact their community and beyond. They get their hands dirty—running a business, leading a nonproﬁt, building things. No matter what barriers they encounter, they ﬁnd a way to get the work done.
Culture of Health Leaders is a national leadership development program for this kind of person. Our current leaders come from ﬁelds as diverse as architecture, education, urban farming, the arts and many others. As we bring on new leaders, we’re looking for even broader representation from every ﬁeld and profession across the private, public, nonproﬁt and social enterprise sectors.
