Leadership for Better Health: National Program Center
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Health Policy Research Scholars Program (HPRS) is a four-year national leadership development program for full-time doctoral students from nonclinical, academic disciplines with a policy focus¿students who are committed to ensuring their research is aligned with the health needs of communities. The program is focused on researchers who want to improve health, well-being, and equity; challenge long-standing, entrenched systems; exhibit new ways of working; collaborate across disciplines and sectors; and engage others outside of the research community. By providing leadership development training, supporting opportunities to practice new behaviors, and learning to work in teams, HPRS will develop a new cadre of research leaders who will build a Culture of Health in their disciplines and communities.
