About the Program

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars program is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). The program is based on the principle that progress in the field of population health depends upon collaboration and exchange across disciplines and sectors. Its goal is to improve health by training scholars to:

  • investigate the connections among biological, genetic, behavioral, environmental, economic and social determinants of health; and
  • develop, evaluate and disseminate knowledge, interventions, and policies that integrate and act on these determinants to improve health.

The program is intended to produce leaders who will change the questions asked, the methods employed to analyze problems, and the range of solutions to reduce population health disparities and improve the health of all Americans.
