Culture of Health Leaders Program

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, government, technology, education, public health, faith/spiritual, business, social service, 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 EST. Send an email to changeleaders@rwjf.org to register.  

 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.

 For more information on the program, eligibility, and how to apply, please see the fact sheet, the full application or visit www.cultureofhealth-leaders.org.
