Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Announces Award Winners for Healthy Equity

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has announced the 2018 winners for the Award for Health Equity.


This annual award program recognizes individuals who have implemented systems changes to advance health equity in their communities.

The program aims to highlight systems-level solutions to advancing health equity throughout the nation, recognize and increase the visibility of individuals who implement systems change solutions to inequities each year, and build a growing network of cross-sector organizations and leaders working to advance health equity.

Award recipients receive an unrestricted cash prize of $3,000 from the selecting organization. Award recipients also receive national recognition at the selecting organization’s annual meeting or gathering of members. In addition, RWJF hosts an annual event to honor and learn from the award recipients and grantee organizations.
