Major Report Released on January 13, 2014 From RWJF Commission to Build a Healthier America

I am very excited to be a Commissioner on the RWJF Commission to Build a Healthier America and proud of our report released on January 13th. We have provided what I consider to be thoughtful and reliable recommendations to help all stakeholders to create the healthiest possible America. These recommendation cover three areas:


  • Prioritizing investments in America’s youngest children.
  • Encouraging leaders in different sectors to work together to create communities where healthy decisions are possible.
  • Challenging health professionals and health care institutions to expand their focus from treating illness to helping people live healthy lives.


Please take a minute to view my video discussing the importance of health professionals’ engagement. I encourage everyone to take a good look at the report and get involved in helping translate the recommendations into action!
