At RWJF, we are working alongside others to build a national Culture of Health that provides everyone in America a fair and just opportunity for health and well-being. To recognize communities that are making incredible efforts toward this goal, RWJF, in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, issues the annual Culture of Health Prize as our way of honoring communities—urban, rural, tribal, large or small—that are beacons of hope and progress for healthier people, families, and places. Please join us as we explore this topic with three 2017 winning communities who will share stories of their journey.
