RWJF Award for Health Equity

Presented by CCPH

2018 RWJF-CCPH Award Winners: Messengers for Health

Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) has partnered with Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to award the RWJF Award for Health Equity Presented By CCPH (RWJF-CCPH Award). This award highlights the power and potential of community-campus partnerships successfully using systems and policy change needed to overcome the root causes of health, social, environmental and economic inequalities.

The award recognizes two “Key Leaders” or key individuals (one community member and one academic partner) who spearhead the success to the field in the area of exemplary partnerships between communities and academic institutions that are striving to achieve health equity and social justice.


Key Leaders need not be with partnerships that are members of CCPH. Key Leaders that have applied in the past but did not receive the award or honorable mentions may re-submit.

CCPH can only accept applications in English. The RWJF-CCPH Award is open only to individuals who are citizens or legal residents of the United States.

RWJF Leadership Awards

The RWJF-CCPH Award is part of a series of awards, supported by RWJF, but administered separately by independent organizations. RWJF believes that it is critical to improve systems that influence the determinants of health —such as public safety, employment, housing, education—in order to improve lives and reduce health disparities.
