Culture of Health Leaders

Funding Agency:
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

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 cohort of leaders comes 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.

Designed to expand and amplify the tremendous experience these leaders already possess, Culture of Health Leaders offers intensive learning opportunities with some of today’s foremost health and equity experts, connects them with a new, larger network of like-minded change agents, and provides an opportunity to rejuvenate by taking a small step back from their day-to-day work.

Alumni from this program will carry the unique distinction of being a graduate of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation leadership program and become a part of a tightly knit network of visionary change agents across sectors and disciplines.
