Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Senior Program Officer
United States
I am working to advance systems change that promote shared value for the health and wellbeing of children, youth, and families to ensure that all can be at their optimally health - socially, emotionally, physically. I would love to speak about closing the opportunity gaps for children and young people by tackling key social and environmental factors, including structural racism and implicit bias, particularly for youth of color and those facing adversity. Please also reach out if you are learning key policy and systems changes in other countries that have been successful at supporting those youth most likely to be disconnected from work and employment. And on a informal note, would love to hear about everyone's favorite South African wine varietals and hiking spots around the world.
