Durham Receives $25,000 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize

Durham residents already know the area has an exceptional reputation as the city of medicine, but now, that reputation for valuing health  is being recognized by one of the largest foundations in the United States.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has announced Durham County as one of the six winners of the 2014 RWJF Culture of Health Prize at the Aspen Ideas Festival Spotlight: Health in Aspen, Colorado. The prize recognizes communities that are building a Culture of Health by bringing together a broad range of partners to improve health for residents. Winning communities each receive a no-strings attached $25,000 cash prize and will have a national platform to inspire others by sharing their journey to better health.
