Apply now for the 2021 RWJF-CCPH Award for Health Equity – due Nov 29!
Application Deadline: Monday, November 29, 2021
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Award for Health Equity presented by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (RWJF-CCPH Award) will highlight the power and potential of community-campus partnerships successfully using systems and policy change needed to overcome the root causes of health, social, environmental, and economic inequalities. The RWJF-CCPH Award recognizes noteworthy leaders and examples to the field in the area of exemplary partnerships between communities and academic institutions that are striving to achieve health equity and social justice.
The RWJF-CCPH Award is part of a series of awards, supported by RWJF, but administered separately by independent organizations. RWJF believes that it is critical to improve systems that influence the determinants of health —such as public safety, employment, housing, education—in order to improve lives and reduce health disparities.
In alignment with CCPH’s mission to promote health equity and social justice through partnerships, the RWJF-CCPH Award for Health Equity seeks to honor a partnership that includes (1) community-based leader and (1) institution-based leader to represent the partnership.
