Thomas Cudjoe, fellow in the Division of Geriatrics, has been selected for the inaugural cohort of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Culture of Health Leaders Program. The program aims to develop a group of leaders from diverse sectors to work with organizations, communities, health systems and policymakers 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 the 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. Each leader will have access to up to $20,000 per year for three years as well as additional project funds to support their participation in the program and project-related activities.
Applications for the 2017 cohort open in January.
