“We, as a nation, will strive together to build a Culture of Health enabling all in our diverse society to lead healthier lives now and for generations to come,” said Dwayne C. Proctor, PhD, MS, director of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s (RWJF) Eliminating Health Disparities Portfolio.
What is a Culture of Health? Proctor stated that in order to ensure a healthy future in our communities, we need to spread and share the vision and its possibilities. This means looking across our community and identifying and elevating those places that need extra attention. It means not being silent, but building demand for healthy places and practices. Most importantly, we need to give all kids a healthy start and truly address the roots of violence where they exist. This is how we can improve health equity now and for the future.SHARE:
