Public Health Competition: Get in on it!

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a leading funder of innovative public health research and programs has just announced a new competition: Designing for Better Health. The RWJF Pioneer Portfolio along with Ashoka's Changemakers are seeking individuals and groups that provide "nudges" (a.k.a. small steps) toward better health. According to the guidelines, submissions should be currently implemented and demonstrating success -- i.e., this is not a place just to throw out a great idea. If you have a great idea, get moving and enter!

Entries must be submitted by April 1, 2009, and will be judged by a panel of 3 judges who will narrow the submissions to 12 finalists. Three winners will be selected by the global Changemakers community by vote and win $5,000.
