The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is offering four new leadership development opportunities for health care providers in various positions.
The Interdisciplinary Research Leaders program teaches researchers and community leaders how to improve health disparities and build healthier communities. The program is run by the University of Minnesota.
Health Policy Research Scholars, led by Johns Hopkins University, is open to first- or second-year doctoral students from underrepresented or historically disadvantaged backgrounds who have an interest in policy.
Clinical Scholars enables clinically active health care providers to lead transformative change in equity. During the program, run by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, participants will engage in intensive schooling, mentoring, and networking.
Finally, the Culture of Health Leaders program facilitates collaboration across sectors that influence health, including transportation, technology, public health, government, and urban planning. The program is co-led by the National Collaborative for Health Equity and CommonHealth ACTION.
Each program involves several in-person sessions, as well as distance learning and online collaboration throughout the year, with a focus on building a “Culture of Health.” An informational webinar about the programs will be held March 30 at noon ET. Applications are due April 19.
