Addressing health through grant-making and program development
J.R. Jamison sat down with Bob Atkins, Director of the New Jersey Health Initiatives of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. They chat about Bob’s journey from registered nurse to co-founder of a youth-development nonprofit to faculty member at Rutgers-Camden, and how these experiences have influenced Bob’s work as a grant-maker throughout the state of New Jersey. They also make a stop off in Pop Culture Corner to talk books, podcasts, and the importance of seeing yourself reflected in the world.
Emily Shields and Sinda Nichols, Associate Director of Minnesota Campus Compact, are joined by Katie Clark, Director of Augsburg Central Health Commons at Augsburg University, for an engaging conversation about providing community-ownership over healthcare and what it means to view healthcare from a lens of social justice and radical hospitality.
Brian Gogan, assistant professor in rhetoric and writing studies in the Department of English at Western Michigan University, Azuri Gonzalez, Director of the Center for Civic Engagement at the University of Texas at El Paso, and Mark Wilson, Director of Civic Learning Initiatives and the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University, to talk about dialogue, Civic Action Planning, and highlights from the national conference.
