The University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute (UWPHI) seeks an accomplished leader in community and population health to serve as the Director of County Health Rankings & Roadmaps (CHR&R), a nationally recognized collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and UWPHI. The Population Health Institute is part of the School of Medicine and Public Health, closely aligned with the School’s Department of Population Health Sciences and other world class schools and departments at one of the most prolific research universities in the world, the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The CHR&R program embodies the Institute’s mission of translating research for policy and practice and has been instrumental in RWJF’s vision to create a Culture of Health, where everyone has the opportunity to live a healthier life, no matter who we are, where we live, or how much money we make. With the CHR&R program entering its second decade, a new director will have the unique opportunity to help shape the evolution of an influential, highly respected university-foundation collaboration and advance a national conversation about health outcomes and health equity with a growing network of national, state, and local partners across the country through a variety of channels and networks including high-profile national, regional, and local media.
