Henry Willis, a graduate student in Clinical Psychology, is the recipient of a 2016 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Research Scholarship.

The goal of Health Policy Research Scholars is to create a large cadre of diverse doctoral students from multiple (nonclinical, research-focused) disciplines—students whose research, connections, and leadership will inform and influence policy toward a culture of health. As part of the 2016 cohort, the Health Policy Research Scholars program will enroll up to 50 scholars who are interested in health policy research and from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds.

Health Policy Research Scholars will complete their doctoral program concurrently and design and apply their health-policy-related work in new ways to meet the pressing needs of communities, collaborate with other scholars and professionals from diverse fields to create a healthier, more equitable future for all people, and develop profound leadership skills to advance a culture of health that will enable all to live longer, healthier lives now and for generations to come.
