To further its mission of improving the health and health care of all Americans and its vision of advancing a culture of health, the Foundation strives to foster innovation, develop ideas, disseminate information, and enable committed people to devote their energies to improving the nation's health. To Improve Health and Health Care, the anthology series of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, offers an in-depth look at the programs it funds. Created for policy makers, practitioners, and interested members of the public, the Anthology series offers valuable lessons for those developing plans and programs in the health field and related fields. The cases discussed in this volume of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Anthology provide a critical analysis of the Foundation's activities and how it tackles health and health care issues. Written by some of the country's leading journalists, as well as experts from within the Foundation itself, this volume focuses on two themes: finding innovative ideas and people through the Foundation's pioneer portfolio and the Foundation's efforts to reduce childhood obesity"--Back cover."@en ;
