2 Massachusetts Communities Awarded Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Roadmaps to Health Prize!

Fall River and Cambridge were among 6 communities nationally that we recently recognized with the inaugural Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Roadmaps to Health Prize!

The Roadmaps to Health prize honors outstanding community partnerships which are helping people live healthier lives and is rooted in the idea that every community is on a unique journey toward health.  The six award recipients were selected from among more than 160 applicants because of their innovative strategies to improve community health.

The city of Cambridge is being honored for improving health equity by addressing public health challenges like obesity and school readiness, while Fall River is being honored for tackling pressing health problems through a public, private, and non-profit partnership.

In addition to Fall River and Cambridge, Santa Cruz County, California; New Orleans, Louisiana; Manistique, Michigan; and Minneapolis, Minnesota were recognized for their dedication to their communities’ health and well-being.

Each winning community received a $25,000 cash prize and their success stories are being celebrated and shared broadly, in person and via web-based platforms, with the goal of raising awareness and inspiring locally-driven change across the country.
