view site

The 2009-2010 Call for Applications for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars program has been released.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars program provides two years of support to postdoctoral scholars at all stages of their careers to build the nation's capacity for research and leadership to address the multiple determinants of population health and contribute to policy change. The program is based on the principle that progress in the field of population health depends upon multidisciplinary collaboration and exchange. 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 and interventions 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.

Key date:
October 2, 2009 deadline for receipt of applications
