The National Civic League believes that to achieve health equity we must understand the challenges, aspirations, barriers and realities of the community. To share the example of innovative approaches to equity and shine a light on leaders across this country, the League partnered with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Together with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the National Civic League recognized individuals who are making health equity a reality in their community. For seven years, the League’s Health Equity Award recognized individuals who were leveraging engagement to improve health outcomes for those most impacted by health disparities.
In addition to national recognition at the National Civic League’s annual All-American City Award and an invitation to participate in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s yearly Health Equity Award annual learning and recognition event, the winners received a $3,000 honorarium.
The RWJF-National Civic League Health Equity Award recognized and honored individuals that successfully implemented a systems change approach to improve health outcomes for those most impacted by health disparities.
