The is seeking applications to its Culture of Health Leaders program, which aims to develop a large cadre of leaders from diverse sectors (e.g., public policy, business, technology, community development and planning, education, transportation, public health, health care, and others) working with organizations, communities, health systems, and policy makers to build a Culture of Health in America.
Over the course of the three-year program, each cohort of leaders will complete a leadership development curriculum, as well as individual and collaborative projects, that support cultural shifts at the local, state, and national levels that are necessary for all people to have opportunities to achieve their best possible health and well-being.
The program will select up to forty leaders for the 2018 cohort. Each leader will be awarded up to $20,000 per year for three years (total of up to $60,000), as well as additional project funds to support their participation in the program and project-related activities. Leaders may also be eligible to receive additional financial support, if needed, through hardship and/or opportunity funds, to facilitate their participation in the program.
The program is open to individuals from a variety of disciplines — including technology; the arts; public policy; business; community development and planning; education; transportation; public health; and health care — who are committed to working with organizations, communities, health systems, and policy makers to build a Culture of Health in America.
