RWJ Pioneering Ideas

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will fund ideas that transform the way we think about health including challenging assumptions or long-held cultural practices, taking an existing idea and give it a new spin—or a novel application, offering a new take or perspective on a long-running, perplexing problem and applying  cutting-edge ideas from other fields to health.

Explore the potential for emerging trends to impact our ability to build a Culture of Health.

RWJ Evidence for Action:  Investigator-Initiated Research to build a Culture of Health

Evidence for Action (E4A), a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), funds research that expands the evidence needed to build a Culture of Health. A Culture of Health is broadly defined as one in which good health and well-being flourish across geographic, demographic, and social sectors; public and private decision-making is guided by the goal of fostering equitable communities; and everyone has the opportunity to make choices that lead to healthy lifestyles. RWJF’s Culture of Health Action Framework, which was developed to catalyze a national movement toward improved health, well-being, and equity, guides E4A’s program strategy.

Deadline: Open
