The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation – National Civic League Health Equity Award

The Award recognizes and honors individuals that have successfully implemented a systems change approach that leverages engagement to improve health outcomes for those most impacted by health disparities. It often takes a community or multiple groups to bring about systemic change. This Award celebrates those individuals who are leading the charge in helping to create a culture of health in their communities.

In addition to a $3,000 prize (to be spent in whatever way the winner wishes), winners will receive national recognition at the National Civic League’s annual All-America City Award event and an invitation to participate in Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s yearly Health Equity Award annual learning and recognition event
