– Additional prizes: Also, two of our collaborators, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the California HealthCare Foundation, are providing an additional $200,000 in grants to the $2 million challenge. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will award funds to three projects that “best combine public health data and health care data to improve the health of communities.” Meanwhile, California HealthCare Foundation will award funding to one or more projects focused on helping county and city officials use health data for policymaking.
My colleagues and I will be traveling around the country for the next several weeks talking with people about the News Challenge. Meanwhile, you can learn more, and submit those inspirations, at newschallenge.org.
