RWJF Announces Young Leaders Award (applications due July 16)

By admin | May 31, 2012

The Robert Woods Johnson Foundation has announced the Young Leaders Award celebrating the achievements of health and health care leaders under 40 years of age. As the application website explains:

As a part of the recognition of its 40th anniversary, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) will honor up to 10 leaders age 40 and under who offer great promise for leading the way to improved health and health care for all Americans. The Young Leader Awards will be given to individuals who have demonstrated innovative leadership in health and health care.

The website contains details about eligibility, nominating process, the selection committee, and a conference in October 2012 to be held in Princeton, New Jersey where the ten Young Leaders will be announced.

It is an important opportunity for Latino health care providers and medical experts to receive national recognition. As a paragraph in the middle of the page states:

Diversity and inclusion are core values of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. We value differences among individuals across multiple dimensions including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, religion and socioeconomic status. We encourage nominations of young leaders from the widest array of perspectives and experiences. We believe that the more we include diverse perspectives and experiences in our work, the better we are able to help all Americans live healthier lives and get the care they need.
