Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Pioneering Ideas: Exploring the Future to Build a Culture of Health

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is working alongside others to help build a better, more equitable future where everyone living in the United States has a fair and just opportunity to live the healthiest life possible. We call that future a Culture of Health.

Pioneer investments explore emerging cultural, scientific, technological, environmental, economical and healthrelated trends, and support cutting-edge ideas in and beyond the fields of health and health care that have the potential to help and/or hinder our progress toward advancing health equity. We do this with the explicit goal of understanding and influencing the trajectory of these trends, by accelerating positive outcomes and averting or mitigating negative consequences.

Pioneering Ideas: Exploring the Future to Build a Culture of Health welcomes proposals that are primed to influence health equity in the future. We seek ideas that address any of RWJF’s Pioneer team’s four current areas of focus described below: 1) Future of Evidence; 2) Future of Social Interaction; 3) Future of Food; and 4) Future of Work. Additionally, under Open Exploration, also described below, this call for proposals seeks ideas that might fall outside of these four focus areas but which offer unique approaches to advancing health equity and our progress toward a Culture of Health.

Please let Lynn Wong know if you are planning to apply for this opportunity.
