The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars online application system for the 2013-2014 cycle is now live and may be accessed by visiting the following link: www.healthandsocietyscholars.org.

Its goal is to improve health by training scholars to: investigate the connections among biological, genetic, behavioral, environmental, economic, and social determinants of health; and develop, evaluate and disseminate knowledge, interventions, and policies that integrate and act on these determinants to improve health. The program is intended to produce leaders who will change the questions asked, the methods employed to analyze problems, and the range of solutions to reduce population health disparities and improve the health of all Americans.
