APA is excited to announce the call for applications to the new Culture of Health Leaders program. This leadership and funding opportunity will support leaders from sectors that influence health — including planning, economic development, transportation, housing, neighborhood development, and others.
Culture of Health Leaders will engage a diverse array of professionals to take their leadership and influence to the next level; collaborate in new ways to create a healthier, more equitable future for all people; and develop advanced leadership skills to build a Culture of Health that will enable everyone to live longer, healthier lives now and for generations to come.
APA’s partners, the National Collaborative for Health Equity and CommonHealth ACTION, will host an introductory webinar on March 24 from 2-3 pm ET. Register here!
Applications are now open through April 19 for programs beginning this fall. Each year the program will select up to 50 participants from a wide range of health and non-health fields to drive change in every sector. Leaders will receive an annual stipend of $20,000 per person and financial support for their team to complete a bold project.
Culture of Health Leaders is a national, three-year program co-led by the National Collaborative for Health Equity and CommonHealth ACTION. It is one of four national change leadership programs, designed by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to extend the influence and impact of leaders working to build a Culture of Health.
