On January 25, 2017, the National Academy of Medicine (NAM), in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), convened its first stakeholder meeting of its Culture of Health Program, entitled Engaging Allies in the Culture of Health Movement. The Culture of Health Program is a multiyear collaborative effort funded by RWJF with the goal of building a nationwide movement to attain greater health equity in the United States. This one-day stakeholder meeting was held two weeks after the release of the National Academies’ consensus report Communities in Action: Pathways to Health Equity, and speakers and participants echoed the study’s recommendations and emphasized the important role of health equity to various aspects of our society. The meeting encouraged participants to engage in cross-sector dialogue and focus on maximizing opportunities for all Americans to reach their full health potential.
