Robert Wood Johnson Culture of Health Prize




The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) will honor the Columbia Gorge Region, Oregon & Washington at its RWJF Culture of Health Prize National Celebration and Learning Event taking place at its headquarters in Princeton, New Jersey. The Columbia Gorge sent a delegation of six representatives to the event, two of whom will participate in a luncheon ceremony discussion about their efforts to ensure the region’s residents thrive.

The Prize honors communities for their efforts to ensure all residents have the opportunity to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives. Chosen from nearly 200 communities across the country, the Columbia Gorge’s selection stems from its success in bringing partners together to rally around a shared vision of health, drawing especially on the wisdom, voice, and experience of residents. The Columbia Gorge region is one of seven communities awarded the Prize in 2016. There are nearly 30 trailblazing communities throughout the nation that have been honored with this distinguished award.
