Given your work and that of your local partners in promoting health equity I wanted to share information about the RWJF-NCL Health Equity Award that recognizes and rewards (with a $3,000 prize) individuals working to advance health equity. The National Civic League is accepting applications for the 2018 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation – National Civic League Health Equity Award. Winners receive a $3,000.00 prize (to be spent in whatever way they choose!) as well as national recognition at the National Civic League's annual All-America City Award and an invitation to participate in Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Health Equity Award annual learning and recognition event.
